High Line 14th Street Passage
Tenth Avenue & West 14th Street Chelsea/Meatpacking
New York, New York
Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly
Nine artists approach music through different lenses—historical, political, performative, and playful—in new installations and soundscapes installed throughout the High Line.
Sit next to human shaped sculptures made with colorful musical instruments, explore what stories discarded objects tell when played and hear what happens when a railway spike becomes a bell. Daily at dusk, see screenings of two works by Song-Ming Ang that show the simple but magical ways that music activates social and material worlds.
Other art throughout the park includes a giant marble Retainer by Hannah Levy at 23rd Street and a large-scale fiberglass drone at 30th Street.
Experience 3D Printing, Coding Video Games with Scratch, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence hands-on with MakeInspires Instructors.
