The Flag Project, a new public art exhibition celebrating New York City, will open at Rockefeller Center (located between 49th-50th Streets and 5th- 6th Avenues, Manhattan) on Saturday, March 27th. The exhibition is free, does not require tickets, and will be on display through Friday, April 30th.

The Flag Project is a public art installation celebrating the medium of photography that called on the public to submit photographs inspired by New York City, with 83 winning submissions being produced as flags and flown from the iconic flagpoles of Rockefeller Center. The installation also features guest photographers, invited by Aperture, who have helped define New York in photographs, including Kwame Brathwaite, Renee Cox, Awol Erizku, Elliott Erwitt, Duane Michals, Ryan McGinley, Susan Meiselas, Nan Goldin, and Tyler Mitchell.

The exhibition is part of a month-long collaboration between Rockefeller Center and Aperture that celebrates New York City through the medium of photography. The program also includes a virtual talks series, pop-up store, and more.
