High Line Art: Francis Cape, The Other End of the Line

If you have visited the High Line this week, you may have noticed a peculiar new addition: there's a mobile home parked on Gansevoort Plaza, under the High Line at Gansevoort and Washington Streets.

The trailer traveled all the way from Sullivan County, NY, and it's all part of Francis Cape's The Other End of the Line — a new public art installation commissioned by Friends of the High Line and debuting to the public on Friday, October 22 at 6:30 PM.

Maneuvering a trailer of this size into Manhattan is no easy feat. It arrived late Monday evening when the towing truck could safely back it into place under the High Line.


Since then, Friends of the High Line and Cape have been busy preparing the trailer's interior for its public debut. Working with Ian Berry, Curator of the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, Cape is transforming it into a public exhibition space featuring works by emerging artists living and working in Upstate New York.

Please join us to celebrate the debut of The Other End of the Line at the opening reception at 6:30 PM on Friday, October 22. The opening reception will be followed by an artist talk from 7:30 to 8:30 PM in the 14th Street Passage (on the High Line at 14th Street).

The Other End of the Line will be on view between Friday, October 22 and Sunday, November 21. The exhibition will be open daily from 2:00 to 8:00 PM on weekdays and from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM on weekends.
