9. Kerry James Marshall is “Above the Line” on The High Line
Kerry James Marshall mural “Above the Line” at the High Line
“Above the Line” by artist Kerry James Marshall is on the wall at West 22nd Street along the High Line. This site-specific black and white is an extension of the artists’ cartoon strip “Rhythm Mastr”, which is a narrative addressing the lack of black superheroes found in American comics. With Comic Con right around the corner (Javitz Center this Fall), it’s perfect timing for this installation.
You can also still view the fourteen works of art that make up the High Line installation “Panorama” through March 2016.
