New Temporary Art For The High Line

The High Line, the elevated railway turned park in New York City, is getting a new addition and with it, a new, permanent location for temporary art installations – the High Line Plinth. As those who have visited the High Line know, it has already been the home to various temporary art installations – from Tony Matelli’s startlingly lifelike “Sleepwalker,” part of the park’s Wanderlust installation, to a mural from artist Barbara Kruger, both currently on display. “For me, this project is an extension of what we do every day on the High Line, which is to bring a great example of contemporary art or culture in general to our audience free of charge, every day of the year, rain or shine,” said Cecilia Alemani, director and chief curator of High Line Art.
