For the 2021 holiday installation at Rockefeller Center, over a dozen of illustrator Lisa Congdon’s large-scale printed vinyl murals will be on view across the campus’ indoor and outdoor public areas. These murals are the latest iteration of the holiday map series, presented in partnership with the non-profit Art Production Fund. Congdon’s illustration is a nod to 1950s and 1960s New York and aims to serve as a work of art guiding visitors to some of the city’s most iconic locations. Included in the design of the murals are the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, the Today Show, Ignacio Matto’s restaurant Lodi, and the New York-based fashion brand Kule. Visitors to Rockefeller Center will also be able to take home a limited-edition holiday map featuring Congdon’s illustrations. They will be available for pickup in the Top of the Rock gift shop, the Rink skate hut, and throughout the campus.

As EB Kelly, Tishman Speyer Managing Director and Head of Rockefeller Center stated: “Lisa Congdon is internationally known for her vibrant designs and uplifting messages—a perfect fit for Rockefeller Center’s holiday season, and a brilliant way to capture the energy that New York City inspires during the holidays. Lisa’s art, along with the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, will light up the Center with lively colors and festive flair!”
