Friends of the High Line hosted its fourth-annual High Line Art Dinner on Wednesday, September 21, 2016. The event, unique in its setting on the High Line itself, welcomed 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.
Now in its fourth year, 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 enjoyed sunset cocktails on the Diller – von Furstenberg Sundeck, followed by a seated dinner under the cover of the Chelsea Market passage.
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.
