Viewing Station: New Art Piece by Richard Galpin to Debut in May

We're pleased to announce an upcoming piece in our High Line Art program, an ongoing series of commissions and collaborations. This May, a new work entitled Viewing Station will debut by artist Richard Galpin, who is best known for his altered and abstract photographs of cityscapes.

For the High Line, Galpin will create a 'viewing station' that will provide a manipulated view of the High Line's surroundings, recalling the artist's abstract photographic work.  Park visitors will look through a viewing apparatus lined up with a metal screen from which geometric shapes have been cut. One of the wonderful experiences the High Line has provided to visitors is a new vista of Manhattan.  Galpin's artwork will offer a novel reconsideration of our surroundings.

This High Line Art Commission is presented by Friends of the High Line and the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. High Line Art Commissions are made possible by Donald R. Mullen, Jr.
