Foxtail lilies pop up on the High Line like exclamation points. They each seem to have their own personality, and from a distance you might imagine them eyetoeye with passersby, commenting on the weather and making small talk. When you come closer, you can see the chorus is actually within the flower itself, as hundreds of individual bells chatter together in the breeze.
This edition was created in collaboration with Friends of the High Line, and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these editions will benefit Friends of the High Line.
Inspired by the flora and fauna of the High Line, Star of Persia and Foxtail Lily celebrate the new half-mile section of the park, inaugurated in September 2014.

Friends of the High Line | See All Editions
The High Line is an elevated freight rail line transformed into a public park on Manhattan’s West Side. It is owned by the City of New York, and maintained and operated by Friends of the High Line. Founded in 1999 by community residents, Friends of the High Line fought for the High Line’s preservation and transformation at a time when the historic structure was under the threat of demolition. It is now the non-profit conservancy working with the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation to make sure the High Line is maintained as an extraordinary public space for all visitors to enjoy. In addition to overseeing maintenance, operations, and public programming for the park, Friends of the High Line works to raise the essential private funds to support more than 90 percent of the park’s annual operating budget, and to advocate for the transformation of the High Line at the Rail Yards, the third and final section of the historic structure, which runs between West 30th and West 34th Streets.
