LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island (Building 110)

The 6th Annual Manhattan Community Arts Breakfast will celebrate our 2017 Manhattan Arts Grantees and the artists who participated in SU-CASA (Manhattan) this year, who together reach over 300,000 audience members and participants boroughwide. We will also recognize our partners in City and State government who continually support the important work of empowering artists and organizations in the borough of Manhattan to ensure that New York City continues to be a vibrant and creative urban center. A light breakfast will be served.
