In celebration of Richard Artschwager’s blp installation, High Line Art, the Whitney Museum, and The Standard, New York, invite you to participate in the collective documentation of the project.

Follow us after the jump to learn more about the contest!

Artschwager first created his blps – a word coined by the artist and pronounced “blips” – in the late 1960s. These public interventions consist of black or white lozenge-shaped marks that inspire focused looking, and draw attention to architecture, structures, and surfaces that usually go unnoticed. Artschwager’s has placed nine blps on and around the High Line. Above is a video of the installation of the blps including our very own High Line Art Production Manager Jordan Benke.

Through February 3rd, take photos of blps you encounter along the High Line and on the Whitney’s building uptown, and email them to Randomly selected submissions will be posted to the High Line and High Line Art's Tumblr and Facebook pages, the Whitney's Tumblr and Facebook pages, and on

Best of all, all participants will be entered into a drawing for the a chance to win a one-night stay at The Standard, a year-long Whitney Curate Your Own individual membership, a year-long "Spike" membership from Friends of the High Line, and a limited-edition High Line Art tote bag.
