When High Bridge opened to the public in June of 2015, the Art in the Parks program commissioned a project called “Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair,” wherein nine artists created art that reflected on the simple concept of sitting down in a chair. The sculptures were placed along the esplanade leading up to High Bridge and included abstract renderings of a table and chairs and a chair made of the letters that spell “sit.” The exhibit was on display until November 2015.
