If you've visited the park recently, you may have noticed black lozenge-shaped marks on and around the High Line. The marks are called “blps” and they are part of one of our latest HIGH LINE COMMISSIONS, an installation by acclaimed artist Richard Artschwager.
The work is the first collaboration between High Line Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, which is building its downtown location next to the High Line’s southern terminus. You can find 9 blps installed in various locations through Sunday, February 3, 2013, in conjunction with the artist’s retrospective Richard Artschwager! at the museum.
Follow us after the jump to learn more and watch.
