Figment NYC Weekend will return to Governors Island from June 3rd to 5th . This is the tenth year for Figment’s free event. Look forward to old favorites like We’d Like to Teach The World To Belly Dance by Manhattan Tribal, where visitors can watch a performance, or actually experience a mini class. The Aqua Attack! also returns with Calling All Parties, an imaginary Japanese game show where participants dress up in costume and stand inside middle pools doing battle using super soaked plush toys. Prepare to get soaked!
Figment 2016 Summer-Long Program will run from June 3 through August 26, and again include some of your favorites like the artist-designed Minigolf Course, returning for its eighth summer. Figment will introduce a new Treehouse named FELIX, constructed by a group of architecture students, which will also showcase art from local artists. Every Saturday and Sunday, Writing On It All will invite participates to write on the interior surfaces of an out-of-use house, lead by artists and writers. Every form of material can be used from charcoal and chalk to pencil and paint.
