Art and sour cream on the High Line
The High Line continues to be a hit here in NYC. This summer the park’s popularity has been enormous and will only continue to grow if these guys keep doing fun, innovative things with the space. Case in point was yesterday’s launch of High Line Art, which is a series of commissions and creative partnerships sponsored by the Friends of the High Line. The works will be be featured on the High Line, around the park, or inspired by the High Line.
The debut was last night and featured the artists Lisa Sigal and Paul Ramírez Jonas. Their installation, Specials, is a mobile unit constructed of vendor carts and a wall. On the wall side various artworks are hung. On the reverse side is an actual taco stand, serving free tacos to art connoisseurs and the many randoms passing by. It’s pretty genius in that it presents art (and tacos) in a very different way.
Last night the cart feautured works by Fiona Tan and Regina Silveira and a potato and corn croquette with red cabbage and avocado taco. Anyone make it over for dinner?
