Photo of the Week: El Anatsui’s ‘Broken Bridge II’ On View

Photo by Austin Kennedy

Austin Kennedy captured this beautiful seasonal photo during one of the final days of installation for a new High Line Art Commission, Broken Bridge II by Nigeria-based artist El Anatsui. The monumental sculpture, seen on the right hand side of the photo, covers an entire exterior wall with an intricate woven texture of recycled pressed tin and mirrors. At 37 feet high and 157 feet wide, the installation is viewable from the High Line and the sidewalks along West 21st and West 22nd Streets, surprising park visitors and pedestrians with its monumental scale.
