Multidisciplinary artist Sanford Biggers’ public art exhibition, the first campus wide survey commissioned by Rockefeller Center, has been extended and will remain on display through Monday, July 12th.

The 25-foot tall bronze sculpture titled Oracle, commissioned by Art Production Fund for installation at the Fifth Avenue entrance to the Channel Gardens, is the cornerstone of Biggers’ takeover and welcomes visitors to the installation. Oracle is a continuation of Biggers’ recent Chimera sculptures, a series of figurative sculptures created by combining African masks and European figures that explore historical depictions of the body and their subsequent myths, narratives, perceptions, and power. This sculpture is the artist’s largest-scale commission to date.

The iconic Rockefeller Center flagpoles have been adorned with flags that feature a unique wave illustration designed by Biggers. The selected design represents the elements wind and water and evokes ideas of movement, transformation, and flow. Biggers’ site-specific installations are on view in both prominent and unexpected public locations throughout the campus including the vitrines at 45 Rockefeller Plaza. The murals displayed throughout Rockefeller Center feature Biggers’ Codex series, an ongoing series of mixed media paintings and sculptures done directly on or made from pre-1900 antique quilts.
