NEW YORK (AP) - A monumental mural by Alex Katz will be mounted directly across from the Whitney museum’s future home in New York’s Meatpacking district.

The work by the New York-based artist is titled “Katherine and Elizabeth.”

The 17-foot-by-29-foot digital print depicting close-ups of two friends will flank the TF Cornerstone building. It will be visible from the nearby High Line.

It’s expected to be installed in September.

It’s part of a series of planned public art installations in the space that will feature different American artists. The museum is collaborating with TF Cornerstone and High Line Art on the 5-year project.

The Whitney is moving from its longtime uptown location to a new Renzo Piano-designed building next spring.

TF Cornerstone is a real estate development company.
