Swiss artist Pamela Rosenkranz’s vivid sculpture Old Tree is now on view as the third High Line Plinth commission. Changing every 18 months, the Plinth is one of the only sites in New York City for artists to realize large-scale contemporary artworks. Presented by High Lne Art, Old Tree is on display on the High Line at the intersection of 10th Avenue and 30th Street where it will remain through Fall 2024.

Old Tree is a vibrant 25-foot-tall pink and red sculpture made of man-made materials. It was among 80 proposals shared with the public in 2020, with many people remarking during the commenting period on the excitement and optimism that the work evokes. Rosenkranz’s commission follows Sam Durant’s Untitled (drone), installed in 2021, and Simone Leigh’s Brick House, which inaugurated the Plinth program in 2019.
