“The Collectivity Project“ for Adults

Tuesday, August 25, 2015
1:30 – 1:30pm
Location
On the High Line at West 30th Street

Learn more about urban planning, architecture, and community using LEGOs and your imagination. Led by a High Line Educator, these special programs for adults are part of Olafur Eliasson’s The collectivity project.

ABOUT OLAFUR ELIASSON’S THE COLLECTIVITY PROJECT
High Line Art presents Olafur Eliasson’s The collectivity project, an installation of 2 million white LEGO® bricks that features an imaginary cityscape conceived and designed by the public. Visitors to the High Line are welcomed to play with the installation, building and rebuilding the structures over time. As the inevitable entropy of the piece begins to soften the hard edges of the designed structures, and mounds of loose pieces gather in the corners between buildings, a beautiful collective creation takes form. Installed in the growing shadow of the real estate development of Hudson Yards, the mutable, human-scale artwork provides a compelling counterpoint to the concrete-and-steel towers that form the project’s backdrop.

RULES
– Ages 4 +
– Children ages 4 – 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult
– No strollers within the installation
– No food or drinks
– Do not remove LEGOs from the installation site
– For your safety, please do not climb or stand on the tables and benches

The collectivity project, part of the group exhibition Panorama, is made possible, in part, by a generous donation of LEGO® bricks from the LEGO Group.

Panorama is supported, in part, by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
