Art Opening & Talk: Richard Galpin

EnlargeA rendering by the artist.

Celebrate the debut of Viewing Station, an interactive artwork by Richard Galpin with a talk by the artist. Viewing Station allows park visitors to look through a viewing apparatus lined up with a metal screen from which geometric shapes have been cut. The combination of these two devices will give visitors an altered, abstracted view from the High Line. One of the wonderful experiences the High Line has provided to visitors is a new vista of Manhattan. Similarly, Galpin's artwork will offer a novel reconsideration of our surroundings.

The artist will speak about the evolution of the piece, and his other artwork. Reception begins at 6:30 PM, talk begins at 7:30 PM.

Location: Chelsea Market Passage on the High Line.
FREE, no RSVP required.
