Commissions

Working with emerging and world-renowned artists, we commission and produce new work specifically for the High Line each year. These sculptures, installations, murals—and more—challenge traditional notions of public art in both playful and critical ways. High Line Commissions are regularly on view for one year, providing new perspectives on each work with the passing seasons. Past commissions include works by El Anatsui, Carol Bove, Barbara Kruger, and Nari Ward, among others.
