The Flag Project at Rockefeller Center
Rockefeller Center is excited to announce its collaboration with City Harvest, the world’s first and the city’s largest food rescue organization dedicated to feeding New Yorkers in need, for its fourth annual The Flag Project. Each year, the crowd-sourced art exhibition invites the public to submit art in various mediums for consideration to be displayed on one of the 193 flagpoles that surround the iconic Plaza, with this year’s theme celebrating New York City’s global cuisine and international cultures. Winning flags will be flown at Rockefeller Center throughout the month of April.
Participants and artists of all skill levels can submit artwork inspired by their most memorable food memories in the city — an unexpected meal at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant to an unforgettable Michelin-starred meal at one of the city’s greatest restaurants. The 2023 Flag Project will also include artwork from several of the recently opened restaurants of Rockefeller Center’s burgeoning culinary community.
On April 3, Rockefeller Center will host a reveal event for this year’s flags from 4-5pm on the South Esplanade. The public is free to attend and food & drinks will be available for purchase from the culinary talent at Rockefeller Center.
