In Memory of Clare Weiss

The staff of Friends of the High Line was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Clare Weiss, the Parks Department's Curator of Public Art, on January 11, 2010.  During her tenure at Parks from 2005 to 2009, Clare helped organize 128 outdoor public art exhibitions, as well as 36 exhibits at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park.  She was a charter member of the High Line's Public Art Advisory Committee, which selected the High Line's first public art installation - Spencer Finch's The River That Flows Both Ways.  Clare worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this city culturally richer and more dynamic.  Her contributions and her spirit will be sorely missed.
