Finalists for 2020 show a taste for whimsey.

Last year’s FIGMENT NYC, the first on Roosevelt Island, drew thousands on two sunny days. Success secured a 2020 return.

Salvage Swings, the City of Dreams winner in 2019, kept visitors happy until late August. But FIGMENT 2020 promises even more creativity.
