This week, we’re giddy about the arrival of the Miami collective FriendsWithYou for the launch of their forty piece environmental installation. The exhibit is called Rainbow City and it’s a celebration of Section 2 of the High Line.
FriendsWithYou presents a vibrant collection of mutable, air-filled sculptures. Inaugurating in the art district of Chelsea during the month of June, this will be FWY’s first large-scale installation in New York City. This happy city is made up of intensely colored balloon pieces, encouraging visitors to be active and explore the giant 16,000 square foot playground. Built for adults and children alike, the installation allows for interaction with each art object, making the experience unforgettable.
The installation will be located at the lot on 30th street in the Chelsea art district. Rainbow City will feature an exclusive pop-up shop where limited edition products designed for AOL will be available. A summer long activity zone with food and beverage will also be featured located adjacent to the installation site.
Rainbow City by FriendsWithYou is presented by AOL.
Installation opens June 8th and runs through to July 5th
