A new High Line Billboard, Shelf Still Life by artist Jonas Wood, is on view at West 18th Street and 10th Avenue.

Wood's work depicts a group of potted plants arranged on a shelf. The plants’ lush green leaves and bright colors of the pots contrast with the neutral hues of the surrounding winter brush, acting as a reminder of the greenery that populates the elevated park in warmer months. Shelf Still Life, the thirteenth installment on High Line Billboard, will be up through February 3.

The High Line is one mile in length, connecting three neighborhoods along the west side of Manhattan.

During snow and ice storms, portions of the High Line, or the entire High Line, may experience delayed openings, early closures, or complete closures to ensure visitor safety and to enable staff to clear the park’s pathways. Learn more about our process for clearing snow and ice.
