Design The Rockefeller Flags 

You read that right! Rockefeller is allowing New Yorkers to design its iconic flags that surround the Rink at Rockefeller Center. Led by the site’s developer Tishman Speyer, “The Flag Project” is looking for artwork that celebrates New York City, whether it be through graphic design, a drawing, or collage. Winning designs will be made into 8ft x 5ft flags and flown from Rockefeller Center’s 192 flagpoles this August as part of a temporary exhibit. A number of notable New Yorkers and artists have agreed to design some of the flags, including Jeff Koons, Marina Abramovic, Sarah Sze, Steve Powers, KAWS, Laurie Anderson, Hank Willis Thomas, Carmen Herrera, Shantell Martin, and Faith Ringgold. The flags around the rink usually represent the 192 nations recognized by the United Nations occasionally changing for special occasions.
