Giorgio Andreotta Calò

Giorgio Andreotta Calò (b. 1979, Italy)  is an artist known for his naturalistic sculptures that reference the aquatic environment of his native Venice. For Wanderlust, Andreotta Calò presents two works: the first, rhábdos, is a walking stick cast in bronze. A copy of rhábdos cast in aluminum will be available for visitors to carry with them on short walks along the High Line. His second work, Wanderlust, is a series of thin brass rods inserted between the planks of the High Line path, which are engraved with the names of people who walked the length of the United States. The work is inspired by the Peace Pilgrim (1908 – 1981), a political activist who crossed the country on foot as many as twenty times.


"Wanderlust" is supported, in part, by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Major support for High Line Art comes from Donald R. Mullen, Jr. and The Brown Foundation, Inc. of Houston. Additional funding is provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and Dorothy Lichtenstein. High Line Art is supported, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council and from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
