Friends of the High Line will host its sixth-annual High Line Art Dinner on Thursday, September 20th, 2018. The event, unique in its setting on the High Line itself, welcomes guests to celebrate High Line Art’s commitment to expanding the role of contemporary art in the life of public spaces and pushing the limits of what public art can be.
The High Line Art Dinner has become a favorite event among influential supporters from the worlds of art, design, architecture, entertainment, real estate, fashion, and philanthropy. Guests enjoy sunset cocktails on the Diller – von Furstenberg Sundeck, followed by a seated dinner under the cover of the Chelsea Market passage. This year, we are pleased to honor High Line Board member Sharon Davis and artist Nari Ward. In addition to being a longtime supporter of the High Line, Sharon is dedicated to humanitarian causes around the world and is an accomplished architect. Nari’s work, including his 2017 High Line Art project Smart Tree, fosters a deeper sense of belonging by utilizing everyday objects as symbols of inclusiveness—a value we hold closely at the High Line.
High Line Art is proud to present the work of world-class artists on the High Line free of charge, 365 days a year. Proceeds from the High Line Art Dinner help sustain this mission, as well as the ongoing maintenance and operation of the park.
