Summer Artist Residency 2021

For a summer exploding with art and color, High Line Nine and Sugarlift are welcoming four artists to our white cube galleries, transforming them into artist studios and exhibition spaces for the second annual Summer Artist Residency.

Artists Lydia Baker, Andrea von Bujdoss, Ryan Coleman and Edward Granger will transform their Chelsea spaces with vibrant public murals and panoramic tableaus. Chelsea has long been the epicenter of art display. Now it’s a neighborhood rooted in creation, where New Yorkers have the opportunity to witness the artistic process unfold throughout the month of August. Visitors walking through the Sugarlift galleries at High Line Nine will see walls go from blank canvases to technicolor masterpieces over the span of four weeks. The artists will be creating work on view to the public August 5th - August 30th. Additionally, the program features weekly Summer Art Nights, 6:00-8:00pm every Thursday in August. Join us for evenings filled with musical performances, speakers, and beautifully colorful galleries!
