It's the fifth year for Art in Focus, the public art program at Rockefeller Center. This year's display will bring the work of three contemporary artists to spaces all around Rock Center. This iteration focuses on abstraction, celebrateing subjectivity to embrace a sense of escapism and surrealism within dreamlike environments. Expect texture, bold color blocking and monochrome palettes.
The first installation, by Nicaraguan-American artist Joel Gaitan, is now on display at 10 Rockefeller Plaza, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, 50 Rockefeller Plaza and the street and concourse levels of 45 Rockefeller Plaza. Next up will be installations by fiber and collage artist Basil Kincaid, then from Brooklyn-based painter Dominique Fung.
