"The Bowery Mission: A Legacy of Transformation" at High Line Nine

Experience the poignant evolution of The Bowery Mission this month at High Line Nine! For more than 150 years, The Bowery Mission has worked to lift city residents out of poverty and position them for growth. Founded in 1872 to help feed and house the influx of immigrants entering New York City, The Bowery Mission has pivoted through the years to be a support system for the city’s most seminal periods. It has helped the homeless during the Great Depression, created recovery programs for those afflicted by alcoholism and the crack epidemic, supported first responders after 9/11, and lifted women out of homelessness with its residency centers. This immersive exhibit showcases silhouettes of some of the most important individuals in the Mission's history, from caretakers and supporters to those individuals whose lives were positively impacted. The Bowery Mission Director Brian Ourien explained the exhibit is deeply tied to the city’s history while allowing you to step inside and experience the stories of its homeless, which are often anonymous.

"The Magic Moment" at High Line Nine

Another insightful exhibition at High Line Nine features the work Younghwa Kim, known as Golf Painter. Kim Young-hwa is the first Korean artist to sublimate her philosophy of golf into oriental art. She is acclaimed for creating her unique style by abstracting traditional Korean techniques into contemporary art. The exhibition Magic Moment introduces a new trend in Korean painting to the world.  The work visualizes the concept of the magical moment and draws it with deep colors, intense inks and a golden touch. The artist captures magic, miracle, joy, success and hope through her depictions of a ‘moment.' For more information, click here.
