LMCC presents the 22nd annual River To River Festival, Downtown New York City’s leading free summer arts festival from June 9th – 18th, 2023!

This year’s River To River Festival marks the organization’s 50th anniversary. In honor of the milestone, the 2023 event series features many LMCC alumni working across disciplines, with a captivating array of dance, performance,  public art installations, historic tours, and live music that reflects the interdisciplinary ethos of LMCC. All events are free and open to all.

Mahicantuck is a Participatory Tape Installation that will be created during one weekend with community members and the general public around Battery Park City. The project is based on the Lenape name for the Hudson River called: Mahicantuk, “River that flows two ways.” It highlights the fact that this waterway – more than a river –  is a tidal estuary, emphasizing the mobility of life and multiple ways to flow and interact.
