EnlargeRock Video: Cherry Blossom by (1986) Shigeko Kubota

Take advantage of the milder weather and view two new High Line Art programs on High Line Channels 14 and 22, at West 14th Street and West 22nd Street.

On Channel 14, A Tale of Two Islands features works by Beatrice Gibson with Alex Waterman, and Frank Heath. Each video in this program offers a portrait of an island located in New York City – the quietly residential Roosevelt Island and the unpopulated North Brother Island. Through May 7, the videos will play on a loop each evening from 4:00 PM until the park closes.

You'll have the chance to see cherry blossoms on the High Line this spring, with Shigeko Kubota's Rock Video: Cherry Blossom (1986) playing on Channel 22 every evening through April 20. In this mesmerizing video, Kubota – a prominent member of the international Fluxus art movement – layers shots of pale pink cherry blossoms against a bright blue sky.

The High Line's gardens undergo an incredible transformation during the month of March, as staff and volunteers trim back more than 100,000 plants during our annual Spring Cutback. As we shear back the dried grasses and seed heads that made our winter garden beautiful, green shoots will emerge.

The High Line will be open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM every day until April 1, when we begin our spring schedule and remain open until 10:00 PM each evening. Before you visit, check out our March bloom list bloom list and High Line Art map, as well as our latest self-guide,.

In keeping with planting designer Piet Oudolf’s vision, High Line plants are not trimmed back at the onset of cold weather. Instead, the textured grasses, skeletal plant stalks, and dried seed heads define the High Line’s winter landscape. When spring arrives, the plants must be trimmed back to make way for new growth. This horticultural effort, called High Line Spring Cutback, takes place throughout the month of March.

Spring Cutback is a monumental task, requiring the hard work and dedication of staff and volunteers over the course of several weeks. Together, we trim back more than 100,000 plants that grow along our mile-long park – and we would love your help.

Learn how you can become a Spring Cutback volunteer.

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.
