Spencer Finch artist talk tonight

The River That Flows Both Ways

Spencer Finch’s The River That Flows Both Ways–the first public art commission on the High Line–is an installation of 700 panes of colored glass on the Chelsea Market building, between 15th and 16th Streets on the elevated park at 10th Avenue.  The distinct colors of the glass panes are drawn from 700 photographs taken of the Hudson river.  On a journey up the river, the artist snapped a photo every minute for 700 minutes within a single day.  The result is a testament to the experience of viewing the flowing river as one travels through time and space, whether by rail or by foot.  The artist will speak about his work tonight, Wednesday the 30th, at 6:30 pm in the 14th St. Passage.  FREE.  RSVP recommended.
