The High Line’s monthly summer family festivals series returns for another year of bringing families together through art making, performances, and storytimes. In July, the theme is "Sing!"
All activities in the monthly series take place on the High Line between 15th and 16th Streets.
Schedule of Events:
Storytime in American Sign Language
Especially for toddlers
Dr. Gary Wellbrock and Onudeah (Oni) Nicolarakis performs an interactive story time in American Sign Language. Families of all abilities are encouraged to attend this performance and learn new words and phrases in ASL.
11:30am–12pm & 12:30–1pm
Classically trained violinist Mathew Silvera (MattViolinist) performs a variety of songs from traditional pieces to pop songs to Calypso.
ArchForKids Art Making
Art making is appropriate for families of all ages and abilities. Children with special needs are encouraged to come make art.
What do music and architecture have in common? Make a 3D tessellation and patterning project that draws on the things that connect the two: rhythm, harmony, proportion, pattern, and dynamics.
Each month, artists from Superhero Clubhouse create an installation to transform the highline space based on the monthly theme. Look for surprises on every corner — they pop up for one day only!
Learn about plants from a High Line Gardener! Each month there's a new, hands-on activity based on the monthly theme. Families can also observe and touch worms!
Interactive Walking Guide
Todd Shalom of Elastic City has created an interactive, participatory walking guide of the High Line for all ages. The guide is complemented with beautiful illustrations by Carla Torres. Pick one up!
This program is held rain or shine. Advance registration is appreciated.
