For a New Year’s Eve treat, AM stopped by the Highline in Chelsea’s meatpacking district to check out Ryan McGinness’ outdoor installation located at Phillips de Pury’s 15th St. auction floor. Even more impressive in person when compared to our preview, the specially designed show was created with two parts in mind – an indoor display (more on that later) of his paintings during business hours and the other being a transformation with signature black-light treatment after sunset for the outdoor passersby via the Highline bridge park (until 8pm). Mixed in with the recent snowfall and usual gorgeous views, Ryan’s “black holes” definitely drew a picture perfect backdrop for our stroll.
Check it all out after the jump.
