Unusual, unexpected and always exciting, Rockefeller Center is home to some of New York City's most spectacular, talked-about events. Whether you’re out for the day or just a few hours, be sure to stop by and see what’s happening.
Uraeus, Anselm Kiefer's first site-specific outdoor public sculpture ever to be commissioned for the United States will be on display this spring at the top of the Channel Gardens, facing Fifth Avenue. Ureaus, presented by Gagosian and organized by Public Art Fund and Tishman Speyer, consists of a gigantic open book with eagle's wings 30 feet in span, both made of lead, on top of a 20-foot-tall lead-clad stainless steel column. Clustered around the base of the column are further outsize lead books, while a large snake coils up the column.
