You know all about FIGMENT… You’re ready to dive in… but you still have some questions! Hopefully the below will answer everything, and feel free to email us at NYC@figmentproject.org if you have additional questions.
What are the hours of FIGMENT?
FIGMENT is open:
Friday, June 10: 10AM – 5PM
Saturday, June 11: 10AM – 6PM
Sunday, June 12: 10AM – 6PM
…in addition, the FIGMENT Terrace will be open until the end of September with a large-scale interactive Sculpture Garden, an artistic Minigolf Course and an architectural pavilion.
Can I bring a car onto Governors Island?
No. We expect a lot of people to come out for FIGMENT, and all vehicles getting on and off the Island during the event are for artists / event production, and have all been pre-registered.
Can I bring my bike / roller blades onto Governors Island?
Absolutely! The Island is very bike/wheel friendly… but you can easily get around by foot or on the Governors Island tram if you prefer.
What if it rains?
FIGMENT is a rain or shine event. Some of the artwork is indoors, but if it looks like it’s drizzling, you may want to bring an umbrella or remember what it was like to be a kid and play in the rain.
How do I get to Governors Island? Where does the ferry leave from? What’s the ferry schedule? Is the ferry really free?
Check out our page on Getting There, and all your questions shall be answered!
I didn’t submit my art / project before the deadline. Can I still bring it?
We would love you to bring your art and projects. However, please note that you cannot bring anything that needs to be staked into the ground, be connected to a power source, plotted on the map, or scheduled for a performance area. Our call for participation for those types of projects is open now. For more information on how to submit a project, please click here.
To have advance notice of submissions opening and deadlines for next year, please join our email list.
How can I find out what will be at FIGMENT?
You can look at (and print) an event map and schedule / list of projects and artists from our website in advance. Because we are a Leave No Trace event, we will not print individual maps or schedules for participants. If you are more comfortable with a map in your hand, you may want to print it out.
Is it really free?
Yes, FIGMENT is 100% free for everyone to participate and enjoy. We run entirely on donations, and we welcome any contribution you are able to make.
What should I bring?
You should plan to bring water and a picnic, for sure. For other items, please see our “What to Bring” page!
