A few fun things going on in art if you're in the city that cloudy and gray June forgot, and has finally got it's summer on...a quick post for hump day:

WED 07.15
A design talk at the magnificent High Line
If you haven't had the pleasure of strolling it yet...I suggest a weekday or morning coffee as you might get mowed down by strollers on the weekends and the hipster bomb in the evenings...)
A lecture with members of the High Line's design team, James Corner (James Corner Field Operations) and Ric Scofidio and Liz Diller (Diller Scofidio + Renfro)
