Press Release

“Someone I Love” An Art Sundae Installtion By Hiba Schahbaz

On February 3 Hiba Schahbaz led children through a digital Art Sundae workshop where participants created watercolor portraits of someone they love. Following the workshop, children submitted their portraits to be incorporated into a public installation with Schahbaz’s own work. “Someone I Love” is on view now at 10 Rockefeller Plaza through May 1st.

As part of the 2021 Art in Focus program, the installation is a collaboration between the artist  and children from around the world. Someone I Love is presented by Rockefeller Center in partnership with the non-profit Art Production Fund.

ART SUNDAE is an ongoing public program launched by non-profit Art Production Fund and New York gallery Fort Gansevoort that is designed to build confidence in children through art-making. This free program offers children the opportunity to work with a contemporary artist to create a public art project. The program is designed to be accessible to all and highlight art’s positive impact across all communities.

ART IN FOCUS is a multidisciplinary program that showcases installations by contemporary artists inspired by the New York City landscape and contemporary life. Artists featured in the series will have their work displayed in a number of prominent and unexpected public locations throughout Rockefeller Center. Art in Focus is presented in partnership with Art Production Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to commissioning and producing ambitious public art projects, reaching new audiences, and expanding awareness through contemporary art.
