Rockefeller Center’s Family Day, Spring Sunday featured Hein Koh’s Art Sundae program, “The Garden of Just Delightful,” presented by Art Production Fund & Fort Gansevoort. Inspired by Koh’s public installation at Rockefeller Center, “Braving the Cold," children will have the opportunity to work with the artist to create anthropomorphic flowers and fantastical garden creatures. Following the Art Sundae workshop, the children’s creations will be included in a public art installation at the Ticket Booth in the Rockefeller Center concourse.
Art Sundae is a public program created by the nonprofit Art Production Fund and the cultural space Fort Gansevoort that is designed to build confidence in children through artmaking. The free program offers children the opportunity to work with a contemporary artist to create a public art project.
