The River that Flows Both Ways by Spencer Finch

Our NYC junket included a visit to the High Line, the high-profile new park built on a reclaimed elevated train line that runs through the West Side of Manhattan. One of the public art installations currently on view is The River that Flows Both Ways by sculptor Spencer Finch.

The installation is housed in a semi-enclosed former loading dock and utilizes that structure’s original windows, with 700 individually crafted panes of glass representing the water conditions on the Hudson River over the course of a single day.

Spencer Finch was born and raised in New Haven and now lives and works in Brooklyn. Learn more about this installation on the Creative Time site.
