Today we unveiled The First $100,000 I Ever Made, a new work created by artist John Baldessari. The work features a $100,000 bill enlarged to cover the 25-by-75 foot billboard next to the High Line at West 18th Street. This is the first work presented in a newly launched series called HIGH LINE BILLBOARD.

We asked Cecilia Alemani, Curator and Director of High Line Art at Friends of the High Line, to answer some questions about the new work.

It’s a familiar experience for those who have recently visited the High Line. Standing at the northernmost point of the park, you look through the metal construction fence and see the still undeveloped stretch of the historic freight rail structure. You ask yourself, “What is happening out there? Will this be open to the public?”

Here is your chance to find out.

Join us at the High Line at the Rail Yards Community Input Meeting on Tuesday, December 6 at 6:30 PM to get an update on the third and final section of the High Line.
