Rail Yard Talks: Rick Darke
Tue, Sep 27, 2011, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Free admission (all visitors, all hours)
Rick Darke first visited the High Line in 2002, when Joshua David and Robert Hammond invited him to see the self-seeded landscape that had taken over the structure. Since then, Darke has been documenting the landscape as it changes in color and texture throughout the seasons. An internationally recognized expert on grasses, Darke has visited the High Line with Piet Oudolf, Melissa Fisher and other staff to talk about the roles these unique plants play on the High Line.
In this talk and slideshow, Darke will take the audience on a visual tour of the High Line, discussing its past, present, and future. A short Q&A will follow the presentation.
