Program Support, Celebrating Medicinal Plants
High Line Programs, Tours, and accessibility are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York City Council, under the leadership of Speaker Corey Johnson.
Horticulture on the High Line is supported by Greenacre Foundation.
Major support for High Line Programs is provided by The Brown Foundation, Inc. of Houston.
Major support of the High Line Plinth comes from a dedicated group of contemporary art leaders and philanthropists. The High Line Plinth Committee supports the realization and success of major art commissions on the Plinth. The Committee includes Shelley Fox Aarons, Fairfax Dorn, Andrew Hall, Hermine Riegerl Heller, J. Tomilson Hill, Dorothy Lichtenstein, Donald R. Mullen, Jr., Mario J.
