On July 7, Youth Insights Arts Careers visited the High Line. Melanie Kress, Assistant Art Curator, led us on a tour of the artworks on view for the summer. For example, the lifelike sculpture by Tony Matelli named Sleepwalker (2014) in the image above.

The tour continued and was packed with fun—we got to ring a bell and we also got sprayed with water by a work of art!
