8. High Line Art and The Standard Hotel Present “I Want a President”
The High Line acknowledges this year’s Presidential Election with the site-specific installation “I Want a President” by artist Zoe Leonard. Although Leonard created this piece in 1992, the year poet Eileen Myles ran as an Independent, alongside Bush and Clinton, it is meant to open dialogue about how much things have changed, or maybe how much they have stayed the same. The piece also imagines, and speaks to, what we want in our leaders. “I Want a President” can be found on the wall under the Standard Hotel on Little West 12th Street, and is co-presented by the High Line and The Standard. The installation will be on view through November 17, 2016.
