High Line Art announcing its second High Line Plinth commission: Untitled (drone), a large-scale fiberglass sculpture mounted 25 feet high, by artist Sam Durant. The artwork will be displayed in the elevated park at West 30th Street and 10th Avenue, known as the Plinth, a landmark destination for major public art. Durant’s artwork will be installed on the High Line in May 2021 and will be on view through August 2022.  Simone Leigh’s Brick House was the first artwork to be displayed since 2019. The sculpture is modeled after the Predator drone, a remotely piloted aircraft that was used by the US military beginning in 1995 to conduct reconnaissance around the world and, later, airstrikes in countries including Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Syria, Somalia, and Yemen.
