The 13th Annual River to River Festival. The R2R Festival has arrived with great events that are fun for the whole family. The R2R Festival runs through the end of June and FiDi Families will provide updates on some great art, culture and entertainment as the Festival brings locals and tourists to Lower Manhattan.
About R2R: In 2014 LMCC will present the 13th annual festival. Working in partnership, we will showcase renowned and breakout artists from New York City and beyond and contextualize their work for a downtown audience. The artists will respond to the architecture of some of New York City’s most iconic locations and hidden gems. The performances, exhibitions, talks, walks, installations, works-in-progress showings, and social gatherings will center around ideas of movement and sound and will vary in scale. River To River 2014 will engage in an ongoing dialogue with the history and future of site-based artistic practices.
Dates: June 19th – June 29th
FiDi Families Insiders: The Bang On A Can Marathon returns for 8 hours of amazing sounds at Brookfield Place. The event begins at 2pm.
Various Locations: Financial District, Tribeca, Battery Park, South Street Seaport and everywhere in between!
