OVERBOARD: A fundraiser for FIGMENT

Saturday, August 15, 2009, 10pm-4am

On Saturday August 15, drop anchor and walk the plank at OVERBOARD, an all-night dance party to benefit FIGMENT.  Join us as we transform a haggard ferry dock into a merry port of call, featuring the siren songs of the city’s finest DJs.  Our vessel is the Battery Maritime Building, a 100-year-old structure of classic exterior elegance, and a raw indoor dock full of old woods and ironwork from the days of yore.

Maritime, mermaid, sailor, pirate, deep sea creature or other nautical attire is encouraged.

FIGMENT is an annual participatory arts weekend on Governors Island, with artwork in every imaginable medium. It is a free, non-profit endeavor run by volunteers. Last June marked its third year.  Hundreds of artists participated and over 13,000 people attended.  FIGMENT’s summer-long exhibition, the City of Dreams, includes 16 large-scale interactive sculptures, and an 18-hole artist designed minigolf course. It is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until October 11.
