Each year during the spring, summer and early fall months, over two dozen arts, culture and education organizations utilize space inside Governors Island’s historic former military houses through Governors Island Arts’ annual Organizations in Residence program — presenting exhibitions, holding free public programs and hosting artist residencies. Over the next decade, the City of New York and the Trust for Governors Island will invest in evolving this seasonal program into year-round permanent homes for cultural organizations on Governors Island.
