Governors Island talk and tour this Sunday

Bus stop with sea spray at Governors Island by Lisa Kereszi

Lisa Kereszi will give a slide lecture of unpublished work from a Governors Island photo project this Sunday the 24th at 130pm in the gallery at the Commanding Officer's House, on Governors Island. The work, commissioned in 2003 by the Public Art Fund, by Kereszi and Andrew Moore, is installed in the former officer's quarters, which is open 7 days a week, normal business hours, through September 25th, 2011. The pair independently photographed the innards and exteriors of the former Army, then Coast Guard, base, which was abandoned in the mid-Nineties and sold to the city for $1 to be turned into a public park. The talk will be followed by a tour inside the gym in the grand building, Liggett Hall, and the Officer's Club inside the South Battery, both otherwise off-limits to visitors. Spend the day on the island, a park in NY Harbor with activities like mini golf and circus school, art installations, bike rentals and food and drink.
