Friends of the High Line - Art Dinner 2015

2015 marked the third annual Art Dinner within the Chelsea Passage area on the popular High Line that runs now uninterrupted from Gansevoort Street in the Meat Packing District all the way to 34th Street just below the Javits Convention Center.  The benefit funds public art projects along the length of the popular destination for New Yorkers and tourists alike and, annually, is held on the High Line itself.

Collaborating with Friends of the High Line and the event design firm Van Wyck & Van Wyck, we provided comprehensive lighting design, audio, and video production services.  This year, the organization sought to have a more substantial video presence to feature the works brought to fruition by the benefit's donors and, to that end, we installed two 2x2 Barco near seamless video walls (each wall consisting of four 55" flat screen monitors) at each end of the dinner reception's two rows of long tables.  Throughout the evening, high definition photos of the art were on constant display in a rotating slide show of images.  

Always a beautiful event that - though covered in a sense - retains a beautiful outdoor atmosphere .... several photos below illustrate our efforts working together with all involved.... 

Two long tables are set for the evening with the event floral design created by Van Wyck & Van Wyck.

The industrial columns provide a natural starting point for defining the dinner reception space with light and enhancing the overall ambiance and atmosphere.

We can't take visual credit but spectacular sunsets are a regular feature of this area of the High Line and this evening's sunset was as beautiful as ever.
