On October 24, High Line visitors enjoyed “Art for Trees,” a TD Forests Project featuring the works of 10 artists inspired by the vision of a greener New York City. Visitors experienced the pop-up gallery, learned more about the project, and received fun giveaways – including limited-edition art posters – all courtesy of TD Bank.
From October 31 to November 14, the original works of art will be available for purchase in an online auction on paddle8.com, with proceeds divided evenly between Friends of the High Line, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, New York Restoration Project, and Trees New York. TD Bank will also donate depictions of the artwork on vinyl clings to schools, community centers, neighborhood gardens, and hospitals throughout New York City.

Friends of the High Line is grateful to be included in TD Bank’s efforts to support parks and green spaces across New York City. Earlier this year, TD Bank made a generous, three-year commitment in support of the High Line Green Corps, a hands-on green jobs-training program for local teens. Proceeds from the “Art for Trees” auction will further Friends of the High Line’s efforts to keep the park clean, welcoming, and free to the public all year long.
