This past weekend, LMCC hosted our Open House at Building 110: LMCC's Arts Center at Governors Island in honor of the final public weekend of the Island's 2012 season. 1500 visitors — a record number — visited LMCC’s visual arts studios and gallery exhibition and also enjoyed a performance by People Get Ready. We'd like to thank NY Waterway for helping make this weekend possible.
As part of Open House New York weekend, LMCC and the US General Services Administration will host a free public art portfolio review session with featured experts at the Alexander Hamilton US Custom House on October 7. The setting is one of New York City’s most extraordinary rooms – the Tiffany Studio-designed Collector’s Office, which is rarely opened to the public. Although registration for the one-on-one sessions has reached capacity, the seldom seen Collector’s Office will be open for public viewing October 6 and 7.For more information on Open House New York, please click here.
