Park update: The High Line will be closed south of 14th St. on Wednesday, May 12, and Thursday, May 13, due to neighboring construction work. The southernmost access points will be 14th St. (stairs) or 23rd St. (elevator). Follow us on Twitter at @highlinenyc for updates.
There are just a few weeks left to see the acclaimed inaugural High Line Plinth commission, Simone Leigh’s Brick House. Celebrating the resilience and beauty of Black womanhood, Brick House is a 16-foot-tall bronze bust whose torso is conflated with the forms of a skirt and a clay house.
The High Line is the only park in New York City with a dedicated multimedia contemporary art program, which we offer to audiences, rain or shine, 365 days a year—all for free. We present works by national and international artists at varying stages of their careers, from emerging voices to those long established. Led by Cecilia Alemani, the Donald R. Mullen, Jr. Director & Chief Curator, High Line Art invites artists to engage with the unique architecture, history, and design of the High Line in creative and provocative ways. Through art, we foster a productive dialogue with the surrounding neighborhood and urban landscape.
You can be the first to hear about new and amazing artworks coming to the High Line. Sign up for the High Line Art newsletter.
Artists create participatory, dynamic performances and transformative experiences that take advantage of the High Line’s setting.
In line with public health officials’ recommendations on social distancing related to COVID-19, High Line Performances are postponed until further notice.
