FIGMENT (figmentproject.org) catalyzes and celebrates an abundance of creativity and passion, challenging artists and our communities to find new ways to create, share, think, and dream. FIGMENT's free annual participatory arts event began in New York City in 2007 and has expanded to include events in cities around the US and now in Australia. In New York, FIGMENT hosts an annual summer-long exhibition on Governors Island that includes an interactive sculpture garden, an artist-designed minigolf course, and an architectural pavilion co-presented with ENYA and SEAoNY.
