Art Alumna Margaret Roleke ’84, was exhibiting her installation “Seagreen Mist” as part of the project Island Universe.

Following the ancient Chinese notion of the five main elements of nature (fire, earth, water, metal, and wood), a group of artists was invited to explore elements of Governors Island: Water, Wind, Light, (Is)land, and People. Transforming the rooms, stairways, and hallways of a house into a series of installations, photo/video presentations, sculptures, murals, and performances, artists broadened the elements of Governors Island to range from its recreational present to the visible landscapes and landmarks in the collective memory of the city’s past.
