Install in progress! Today, were excited to debut a new work by #DoHoSuh as part of the ongoing series of public art installations located across the street from the Museum and @highlinenyc. Suh''s site-specific work visually reconnects the building facade of 95 Horatio Street with the elevated railway that once occupied the neighborhood. Although today the High Line ends at Gansevoort Street, the artist imagines what the vista might have looked like in the days when train tracks continued to run through buildings down into SoHo. #WhitneyMuseum
