River to River Festival

June 24, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


projects at 31 unique sites across Lower Manhattan and Governors Island. The Festival also offers opportunities for audiences to interact with artists, socialize and experience multiple facets of artists’ work and the creative process. This year’s River To River Festival is dedicated to Trisha Brown and David Rockefeller.

River To River is a platform for diverse voices and untold stories. The Festival explores Lower Manhattan and nearby Governors Island with forward-thinking, boundary-blurring artists across all disciplines to reveal both new and existing—but often overshadowed—contemporary narratives about the waterfront, the built environment and the past, present and future of our neighborhood. LMCC and the Festival are identifying and illuminating local, pressing artistic and social issues in the global context of New York City. With the Festival, we carry on an ever-important legacy of artists making work in and for the public sphere, particularly in Lower Manhattan, and we are committed to continuing to offer this free programming to all audiences!

The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s wide-flung free celebration has many exciting offerings in 2017. Participating artists include En Garde Arts, Netta Yerushalmy, Jodi Melnick, John Monti, Beth Gill, Faye Driscoll, Marjani Forté-Saunders, Maria Hassabi, Kamau Ware, Kameelah Janan Rasheed and the Dance Cartel. Also on the lineup is A Marvelous Order (June 15, 17–18), an original opera about the clash between city planner Robert Moses and activist Jane Jacobs. 

Check it out every day the weekend of June 23rd, 24th, and 25th at 1:00 at various locations. Visit event website for festival calendar and details.
