Throughout the Rockefeller Center Campus

Free to all
Rockefeller Center and Art Production Fund present the 2022 holiday map and holiday installation, created by illustrator Lorraine Nam. Now through January 13th, over a dozen of Nam’s large-scale printed vinyl murals will be on view throughout the campus’ indoor and outdoor public areas, and a free Rockefeller Center limited edition holiday map featuring Nam’s playful illustrations will be available to visitors, as well as all those who work at the Center.
This presentation marks the fifth iteration of the holiday map series in partnership with the non-profit Art Production Fund. Driven by her passion for storytelling through visual imagery, Nam’s illustrations underscore the universal holiday spirit. This project, imagined under the theme Dance For Joy, depicts children celebrating the season and their individuality through movement. An ode to the artist’s early love of origami and paper-based crafts, Nam painted and collaged paper to create her illustrations. Her bright palette, bringing variations of pinks, reds, blues, and greens into the illustrations, makes for a dynamic and energizing viewing experience. Included within the map are iconic Rockefeller landmarks such as the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, NBC Studios, Radio City, and the Today Show, as well as several highly anticipated new additions to the Center including Alo Yoga and the Rink Level Restaurants.
Nam’s work can be seen throughout Rockefeller Center, including inside 10 Rockefeller Plaza, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, 50 Rockefeller Plaza, and the street and concourse levels of 45 Rockefeller Plaza, as well as outside on Rockefeller Plaza. Maps are available in the Top of the Rock gift shop, the skate hut at The Rink, and throughout the campus.
