Photo of the Week: The collectivity project

Photo by Liz Ligon

For any LEGO lovers who find themselves on the High Line by West 30th Street, we have just the treat for you. The collectivity project, High Line Art's newly opened art installation created by Olafur Eliasson, is made of two tons of white LEGO bricks.

The public art project features an imaginary cityscape conceived and designed by the public. This photo by Liz Ligon illustrates the variety of structures being built and rebuilt by our visitors, from tall skyscrapers to Japanese temples. Not only is the exhibit meant to stimulate collaboration and creativity among its participants, but it is also meant to engage participants in a larger conversation surrounding the many changes our urban centers undergo. With an emphasis on collective architecture, the installation is all about imagination and fostering a cooperative spirit among visitors and the local community.

The exhibit is free and open to ages 4 and up. It is open every day from 10 AM to 7 PM through September 30. Feel free to take pictures and get building tag your creations with #collectivityproject and we may post them on our social media channels!
