Gallery Mondays: Hewitt’s ‘Urban Rattle’ on The High Line NYC

I haven’t been to The High Line since last year, and looking back at some of the photos I’ve taken while up there makes me want to go back this fall!

I took this photo when I visited The High Line with some friends back in 2013. It’s an art installation by Charlie Hewitt called Urban RattleWhen I first saw it, I didn’t think much of it, but it’s quite the intriguing art installation.

The rattle contains seven pieces. I can only make out a few of the pieces in the rattle—Pacman, a crown, and a boomerang.

When I was a toddler, I don’t remember having a legit rattle (my mom says I had one though), but I do remember having this doll with a handle that I would shake to create a bell sound. I loved that doll. I think her name was Molly.

Totally wouldn’t have minded having this Urban Rattle to play with, though.
