West Harlem Art Fund at Governors Island

In Section: NY comPRESSed » Posted In: Art Posted By: Staff

What better way to celebrate Hurricane Irene mercifully sparing New York City her wrath than taking an end-of-summer trip out to Governors Island? The best New York City day trip that you’re not taking, Governors Island comes to life every summer with art, music and just about anything else you could imagine.

Among the exhibits still on display (through Sept. 25) is West Harlem Art Fund’s Loosely Coupled, in historic Nolan Park. The 13-year-old West Harlem Art Fund has been having a stellar year this year, with exhibitions in Time Square during Armory week and now on Governors Island.

Loosely Coupled is a group exhibition of works from ethnically diverse artists Dianne Smith, Scherezade Garcia, Wayne Liu, Allen Anthony Hansen, Luke Schumacher, Colin Chase, Kurt Goodrich, Iliana Emilia Garcia and Peter Goldwater. Displayed together without a specific theme, the works are intended as complements to one another, according to West Harlem Art Fun’s Executive Director Savona Bailey-McClain. Don’t trick yourself into postponing a trip out to the Island with a month of the exhibit to go; grab your chance as soon as possible.

The exhibit is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, 12–4 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.myharlem.net or http://www.govisland.com.
