New Yorkers celebrated art and music at an event on the High Line Wednesday.

The Abington House in Chelsea put on the event as part of its Summer Art Park Series.

Parkgoers enjoyed music and a live art show by street artist Victor Ving.

Vangs paid tribute to the city by creating a large 3-D piece titled "New York, New York."

Organizers said the event draws attention to the thriving art scene in Chelsea while members of the public are able to take it all in for free.

"Where else in New York can you have art and the High Line and an outdoor space, and we have food trucks, and it's a great party," said Ben Joseph, a senior vice president with Related Companies.

"I'm really enjoying it," said one attendee. "It's free food, free music, free art, and I think that's the best way to explore the city."

"I'm having a blast here today," said another attendee. "I tried the cupcakes over there and they were good, but the thing I enjoy the most is the spray painting."

The Art Park Series run every Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. until August 27 at the Abington House on 30th Street.
