This Summer, Play With Over 2 Tons of Legos on the High Line

This summer you can play with over 2 tons of all-white Lego bricks on the High Line in Chelsea.

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson was commissioned by the Friends of the High Line as part of a collaborative art exhibit called The Collectivity Project.

Starting with Lego brick structures of skyscrapers built by firms that include OMA New York and Renzo Piano, who built the newly opened Whitney Museum of American Art that now sits at the southern tip of the High Line, the installation invites the public to use the initial buildings as a point of departure to build and rebuild the structures in their own image, considering the spaces they live, work, and play.

The Collectivity Project is near the 30th street entrance of the High Line through September 30th, 2015, as part of High Line Art’s Panorama exhibition.
