Here Now, A New Public Artwork Revealed at The High Line

A newly-minted addition to yesterday's public art map is a 25-by-75 foot $100,000 bill by conceptual artist John Baldessari. Things to know: it's titled The First $100,000 I Ever Made, it's the first work to grace the High Line billboard at West 18th Street, and the $100,000 bill was an actual thing. (42,000 of them were printed for a three-week period in 1935, never circulated to the general public, and mostly destroyed in the 1960s.)
