Arts World Financial Center is the largest year-round, free performing arts and cultural presenter on the East coast. In its twenty-year history, Arts World Financial Center has been a vehicle to present premieres (World, US, and New York), commissioned works created specifically for the public spaces of the World Financial Center, and previews of works scheduled for other major New York City cultural venues, in addition to exhibitions and installations from important museums and festivals celebrating the arts of individual cities, countries and cultures.
