High Line Art Chronicles

The dour finish line of the High Line's first section?mean metal fence, teasing glimpses of Phase II?is getting a makeover! Artist Valerie Hegarty is prepping Autumn on the Hudson Valley with Branches, a work "that imagines a nineteenth century Hudson River School landscape painting that has been left outdoors, exposed to the elements...Hegarty’s canvas is tattered and frayed, and the partially exposed stretcher bars appear to be morphing into tree branches, as if reverting back to their natural state." The mindfuck debuts November 11. [Friends of the High Line]
