The  May  Room  is  now  open


The May Room is the latest in a series of installations as part of Shantell Martin on Governors Island, the Trust for Governors Island’s 2019 Public Art Commission. Welcoming the public inside the building for the first time in 20 years, The May Room, expands on the exterior of the former military chapel Our Lady Star of the Sea, and transforms its interior into an intimate introspective environment. It will be open weekends through the end of the Island’s season and will also host free public programs including a series of readings presented by the Poetry Society of America, featuring poets from national organizations Kundiman and CantoMundo.


*The May Room is open weekends 11 AM-5 PM, September 8-October 27, 2019.
