The Rockefeller Center Flag Project
New York, NY
Rockefeller Center is honoring New York City by inviting artists across the globe to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity — the chance to design a flag to fly over Rockefeller Center and celebrate the city's "diverse culture, vibrant energy, and strength." The prompt was simple: show your love for New York.
When I moved to the city, I fell in love with the day-to-day minutia — the same things that millions fell in love with before me, and the same things that millions will after. This flag reflects all of that.
Selected artists included Carmen Herrera, Christian Siriano, Faith Ringgold, Hank Willis Thomas, Jeff Koons, Jenny Holzer, KAWS, Laurie Anderson, Marina Abramovic, Sarah Sze, Shantell Martin and Steve Powers.
