Art on the High Line
Spring is a great time to walk the High Line which keeps getting better every year. If you haven’t been in a while, you will discover major new art installations, like Henry Taylor “The Floaters” which is now on display
Henry Taylor is a painter known for his intimate depictions of people, capturing a wide range of subjects that span from his close friends and family, to strangers whose appearances strike him, to celebrities within the African American community. His color-blocked compositions evoke compassion and a sense of shared space, setting the viewer in close conversation with those pictured. Get more details about art on the High Line.
March 17–June 11, 2017
If you haven’t made it downtown to the Whitney’s new home, the 2017 Whitney Biennial is a great reason to go for the seventy-eighth installment of the longest-running survey of American art, which arrives at a time rife with racial tensions, economic inequities, and polarizing politics. Throughout the exhibition, artists challenge us to consider how these realities affect our senses of self and community. The Biennial features sixty-three individuals and collectives whose work takes a wide variety of forms, from painting and installation to activism and video-game design. Get the details.
March 26- April 9. Flower Show at Macy’s Herald Square
The flower show is always a great way to start spring.
