Thereʼs always something happening at Rockefeller Center.

  • 2019 Art in Focus
    Free and open to the public

    January 1 – December 31, 2019

    Rockefeller Center in partnership with Art Production Fund will present a series of public art pop ups throughout the center. Taking place in unique and unexpected locations, the multidisciplinary program will showcase installations inspired by the New York City landscape and contemporary life. 

    Current Installation:



    Free and now open through September 20.

    Three vitrine spaces at 45 Rockefeller Plaza features Brown’s plaster wall reliefs. Using bamboo hoops, door knocker earrings, heavy rope chains and her own body as tools for casting, Brown makes impressions in the plaster, embedding the material with a series of references to hip-hop, 90’s music, and the culture in which she grew up.

    Vinyl murals installed throughout the concourse and on the plaza include a variety of Brown’s motifs and symbols throughout her wall reliefs, immortalizing relics traditionally associated with African American culture.

    Brown’s work will be seen in various locations throughout Rockefeller Center including inside 10 Rockefeller Plaza, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, 50 Rockefeller Plaza and the street and concourse levels of 45 Rockefeller Plaza, as well as outside in Rockefeller Plaza in NYC.

    ART SUNDAE, Wednesday, August 21 from 3-5pm
    A free and interactive workshop with Lakela Brown


    Art Production Fund & Fort Gansevoort are pleased to present the sixth iteration of Art Sundae in partnership with Rockefeller Center. On Wednesday, August 21st, from 3 - 5pm, NYC Children are invited to participate in an ART SUNDAE workshop featuring an interactive project with Art in Focus artist LAKELA BROWN for an upcoming public art installation. The workshop will take place in the 30 Rockefeller Plaza Concourse, just adjacent to Starbucks.

    Participants will explore a process used by artist LaKela Brown through the activity of making a small relief. Stamps and beads will be provided to press into the surface of air-dry clay to create a dimensional composition of shapes and textures. The resulting impressions can be embellished with golden metallic paint.

    ART SUNDAE is a public program created by the non-profit Art Production Fund and the cultural space Fort Gansevoort that is designed to build confidence in children through artmaking. The free program offers children the opportunity to work with a contemporary artist to create public art projects.
