One event on March 20, 2023 at 9:00 AM
Rockefeller Center today announced a collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Climate Museum for the third annual The Flag Project. Each spring, this crowd-sourced art exhibition invites the public to submit art for consideration to be displayed on one of the 193 flagpoles that surround the Plaza. Artists of all levels can submit their work through the Rockefeller Center website until February 24th. The flagpoles, traditionally adorned with the flags of the nations recognized by the United Nations, will be flown at Rockefeller Center from April 1st to May 6th to mark Earth Day and on June 5th for a special commemoration of World Environment Day.
The global call for submissions is now open for mixed-medium artwork that celebrates “Only One Earth,” the theme for this year’s World Environment Day, showcasing our appreciation for the environment and how to live sustainably and in harmony with nature. UNEP and the Climate Museum will select winning designs that will be transformed into eco-friendly, biodegradable flags. This year’s Flag Project will also be the focal point of Rockefeller Center’s Earth Day celebrations on April 22nd that will include free, public programming with the Climate Museum, including a talk on climate arts inspiring action with Miranda Massie, Founder and Director of the Climate Museum (presented in partnership with Never Stop Learning), Climate Art for Congress youth climate art and advocacy project, and additional activities.
