Presentations From Two High Line-Based Education Programs

The unique nature of the High Line structure, its history, and efforts to reuse it, make it a valuable tool for teaching New York City students about history, architecture, planning, and preservation. FHL conducts its own education program, working directly with high school teachers and students in the High Line neighborhoods, and this year two major non-profit cultural institutions have initiated High Line teaching programs. FHL has been actively involved with Cooper-Hewitt's "City of Neighborhoods" program, inspiring New York City high school students to create reuse proposals for the High Line. Dia:Chelsea and Eyebeam, meanwhile, have joined in their "New Media Collaborative" program to work with students from Bayard Rustin High School for the Humanities to create High Line-themed digital art projects in Web design, sound, performance, and video art. This month, "City of Neighborhoods" and "New Media Collaborative" both present student work:
