Photo of the Week: Carol Bove at the Rail Yards

The 2013 season of High Line Art includes a variety of new commissions, including contemporary takes on urban monuments, the longest video ever made, and a fascinating installation of sculptures by artist Carol Bove, entitled Caterpillar, in the third and final section of the High Line at the Rail Yards.

Public walks kicked off in mid-May and will continue for a year, allowing visitors to view the fascinating sculptures of Caterpillar scattered amongst the self-seeded landscape of the High Line at the Rail Yards. This magical photo of one of Bove's pieces, Prudence, was captured by High Line Photographer Steven Severinghaus during an early evening walk after a thunderstorm, when the vegetation was at its greenest.

If you would like to see Caterpillar, we will begin taking reservations for tickets on Tuesday, June 18, at 4:00 PM. Tickets will be available for walks taking place between Thursday, August 8, and Saturday, September 28. Learn more about this last opportunity to explore the High Line at the Rail Yards before it is turned into public parkland.
