Visit to the High Line and Chelsea Galleries

October 18, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

Guided Tour of the High Line and Visit to Chelsea Galleries

Wednesday, October 18th from 10:30am – 1:00pm

Join us in NYC for a guided tour of the High Line followed by a few gallery visits in Chelsea.  The High Line is a public park on the West Side of Manhattan that has been built on a historic, elevated rail line which was originally scheduled for demolition in 1999.   The High Line was always intended to provide more than just public space and gardens and is home to a diverse suite of public programs, community and teen engagement, and world-class artwork and performances.

We will have a special docent-led tour of the High Line and hear about the history of this iconic greenway that extends from Gansevoort Street up to the Hudson Yards.  As we explore the park, we will also learn about the vast gardens and art commissions that are currently installed along the High Line. 

In addition to visiting the High Line, we will also visit a few galleries in Chelsea. Exhibitions we will see include new work by Dana James at Hollis Taggart Gallery, Sean Scully’s new show Jack the Wolf (which he created in collaboration with his son Oisin) at Cheim & Read, and the Louise Bourgeois’ exhibition at Hauser & Wirth

The group will meet up in the park at the Gansevoort entrance to the High Line. Walking from street level, you can take the stairs at the park entrance on Gansevoort and Washington streets, just next to the Whitney Museum. We recommend taking Metro North from CT to Grand Central.

Cost:  $50 Members | $65 Non-members
