The opulent sculpture pictured here sharing a bench with a child on the High Line is “Stand Inside Your Love,” made by the artist and performer Raúl de Nieves for “The Musical Brain,” a surprise-packed group exhibition installed throughout the park until March, 2022. (De Nieves’s piece is situated near Hudson Yards.) The work of this Brooklyn-based artist reflects both his longtime interest in costumes—he learned how to sew as a boy in Michoacán, Mexico—and his involvement in New York City’s club scene.
