Building 110: LMCC’s Arts Center
At Governors Island
A former Army warehouse embedded in the midst of Governors Island’s picturesque landscapes, expansive waterfront views, and unique historic architecture, Building 110: LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island – with 20 studios for visual artists, 2 rehearsal spaces for performing artists, and a Gallery space – is multipurpose, multidisciplinary arts center for both artists and audiences alike.
Throughout the year, LMCC’s Arts Center is a shared, multidisciplinary space where participating artists can experience a retreat-style residency just a short ferry ride from the frenetic buzz of the city. While on the Island, artists develop their practice and create new works, drawing inspiration from the unique location, as well as the community of fellow visual and performing artists-in-residence that forms in the space.
During the summer season, LMCC and artists-in-residence welcome visitors into both the Gallery and the studios. As a visitor to Building 110 this summer, you can look forward to discovering new artists, engaging with the artistic process, and enjoying the experience of art-going in this stunning parkland setting.
