You could spend your entire time on the High Line in NYC just taking in the beauty of the wildflowers planted along the route, or the stunning views of Chelsea and lower Manhattan. But as if that weren’t enough, there’s also a huge variety of public art to see along the elevated park, curated by Friends of the High Line. Passersby will notice images on a grand scale displayed on the billboard at West 18th Street and Tenth Avenue; film and video projected on the walls at West 14th and West 22nd Streets; and commissioned pieces on scales both massive (El Anatsui’s monumental Broken Bridge II) and minuscule (the “Lilliput” group exhibit, which saw tiny sculptures dotting the park). The art is always changing; in case you missed anything, here’s a photographic rundown of pieces both past and current.
