Current Installation:

HILARY PECIS

July 6th – September 2nd


Pecis is known for her vibrant acrylic paintings that depict the intimate spaces around her. Using vivid colors and textures, Pecis transforms her domestic settings into rich and memorable scenes that immediately captivate the viewer. Much of her influence is drawn from the light and landscape experienced in her life in New York City and Los Angeles. At Rockefeller Center, the iconic art deco architecture is juxtaposed with Pecis’ vibrant painting, creating an eye-catching visual dialogue between the two unique aesthetics.

The history of painting and still lifes are also considered in Pecis’ work. Pecis explores traditional motifs, while utilizing modern color techniques and unexpected perspectives. The combination of contemporary practices and classical art history gives each work an added dimension, simultaneously feeling both familiar and incredibly fresh and new.

Upcoming 2021 Artist Installations:

Following Hilary Pecis will be floral artist and founder of the studio Bloom & Plume MAURICE HARRIS. The year will be rounded out by renowned illustrator and author LISA CONGDON who will show her vibrant graphic drawings across the campus and create the annual Rockefeller Center holiday map.
