Details for a major new art installation, going in on the High Line this summer, have been finalized.

Building on the success of Spencer Finch's installation in the Chelsea Market Passage, we're once again partnering with public art superstars Creative Time and the public art wing of the Parks Department. This time, we commissioned a site-specific multi-channel sound piece from artist Stephen Vitiello, entitled A Bell for Every Minute. The piece will be installed in the 14th Street Passage, another semi-enclosed space where the High Line runs through a former industrial building.

Jan Gilbert's "Sur la ligne/On the line" at 571 Projects.
 

571 Projects in Chelsea is now showing a High Line-inspired work by artist Jan Gilbert. The New Orleans native makes her debut in New York with a piece entitled Sur la ligne/On the line. In the gallery's press release, Gilbert states that the High Line "serves as a superb viewing pedestal of this vibrant, quirky, industrial layer of the city." Her photographic works combine multiple perspectives on views from the High Line, and the images are embalmed in a transparent membrane.

We love this shot by Tim Schenck of Silman Associates, the High Line’s structural engineering firm. It shows the progress, and the context, of the new access point at 30th Street, what will be the northernmost point of Section 2.
