Founded in 2009, High Line Art presents a wide array of artwork including site-specific commissions, exhibitions, performances, video programs, and a series of billboard interventions.
HIGH LINE COMMISSIONS are temporary, site-specific artworks that provide a unique experience and introduce innovative works by contemporary artists to a broad audience.
