Have you ever seen an art exhibition come to life? The annual Figment Festival at Governors Island is one of the rarest art experiences in New York that allows you to experience an art show in motion, and you’re behind the wheel. Figment’s mission is to demonstrate “what the arts can be: participatory, bursting with creativity and completely free, born from the desire to share imagination and invention between artists and the public.” And it truly is a magical world with a range of activities, such as the arcade-themed mini golf course (each station created by a different artist) and an interactive sculpture garden featuring an assortment of unique art playgrounds, including a birdhouse (for people) and an oversized wooden television screen that invites the viewer to be the entertainer.
Sat., June 9, 10 a.m.; Sun., June 10, 10 a.m., 2012
