What’s a BLP? BLPS are black pill-shaped interventions placed throughout New York by artist Richard Artschwager. These marks have been carefully installed along The High Line park, The Whitney Museum’s new construction site (one block south of The Standard) and on The Standard, High Line herself. In celebration of these BLPS, The Whitney, The Standard and The Friends of The High Line invite you to participate in a collective documentation project … but first you have to find them.

To learn more details & all the “secret” spots where you can encounter these blps – watch this:
