On September 2, 4heads (a New York City non-profit organization created by artists for artists) will open the 10th edition of the Governors Island Art Fair, featuring work by over 100 new and returning artists including our very own class of 2016 alum Sara Meghdari. For the first time the exhibition will be presented in the historic homes on Colonels Row and on the ground floor spaces of Liggett Hall. Touted as New York’s largest independent exhibition, GIAF welcomes over 40,000 visitors annually in New York Harbor.
The Art fair will run every weekend from Saturday September 2nd through October 1st, 2017 from 11am to 6pm. While admission is free, in order to arrive on the island you will need to take the ferry which costs $2.

Meghdari has described her practice as a "passion to create driven by my bicultural background as an Iranian-American. My work is a reflection of culture as well as the self, pursuing distinct and obscure emotions in an attempt to create a narrative and connect with humanity."
