“I’m excited about the actual process of creating Public Art. My artwork is about having fun, bringing a smile to people’s faces, and at the same time, providing a unique way of experiencing some of our most familiar objects, places, or people. I view my artwork as a visual representation of happiness, love, and the beautification of physical space and I love how Public Art achieves this goal and reaches so many people.”
The exhibition is free and open to the public through August 16, 2020; no tickets are required. Visitors to this temporary public art installation are encouraged to post photos and videos to social media using the hashtags: #TheFlagProjectRC and #RockefellerCenter.
