Spring is in the air throughout the park. You’ll notice bright flowers popping up among the trimmed back grasses, new green shoots appearing in the planting beds, and the sweet scent of trees and shrubs covered in blooms. High Line Art is also gearing up for an exciting season of new installations, performances, and film screenings.

Here is a look at what’s on view in April.
