Press Release

Art Productiond Fund and Fort Gansovoort in partnership with Rockefeller Center© invite children of all ages to participate in an ART SUNDAE workshop with visual and performance artist Vanessa German. Working with German, children will have the opportunity to use cardboard cones, twine, ribbon, yarn, fabric, beads, buttons, jewelry, and embellishments to create “power figures,” sculptures of beings that symbolize hope and purpose. Following the Art Sundae workshop, the children’s creations will be included in a public art installation displayed at the Ticket Booth in the Rockefeller Center concourse. 

The workshop will take place as part of “Winter Warmer” the first installment of Rockefeller Center’s 2020 free family and kids programming series. “Spring Sunday” will take place in April, “Summer Play” in July, and “Saturday School” in September. Children can also enjoy free music and activities including live puppet shows, face painting, art and science workshops.
