Throughout the year, the Rockefeller Center Channel Gardens blooms in uniquely themed plant installations that transform with the seasons.
Visit the Channel Gardens to see the April Showers installation on display from April 20 through May 31.
Designed specifically for Rockefeller Plaza, Masks (Pentagon) consists of five masks ranging in height from 14.5 to 16.5 feet, each of which reflects a different approach to the stylized representation of the human face, from the clearly recognizable to the highly abstracted.
The five masks, which were cast from clay in industrial-strength synthetic plaster, stand on a stepped base made from massive beams of unfinished redwood. The back of each element of the sculpture reveals the artists method of construction – a grid-like armature of rebar inlaid with hemp and plaster.
Rockefeller Center is home to a remarkable collection of art deco motifs and sculptures signifying man’s development in spirit, science, industry and more.

As our Summer Encore series continues, Amy Beth revisits her fascinating conversation with Eileen Rockefeller, author of the compelling memoir Being a Rockefeller: Becoming Myself. The great-granddaughter of John D. Rockefeller shares her inspiring and multi-faceted life with disarming vulnerability. The first woman in her famous family to pen a memoir, Eileen reveals her family's wholesome values and the stark contrast with those often held by the rich and famous, navigating her own identity as she danced around people's perceptions and expectations, and ultimately her pioneering the concept of Emotional Intelligence and the teachings it has spawned.

Today I have the pleasure of talking with Zoe and Grace from WomanKraft Art Center in Tucson, AZ. This center was established in 1974 and according to their website is the place where "dreams you didn't even know you had come true." WomanKraft Art Center was founded in 1974 to claim, validate, and empower women artists and other under represented groups.
Kraft with a “K” means power in German. In 1974 the founders of WomanKraft chose this name to claim, validate, and empower the cultural contributions of women and incorporate this non-profit Arts Organization.
In 1979 WomanKraft started the Community Artist Project and received Comprehensive Education and Training Federal Money to send artists out into the community to work with special populations, such as prisons, mental institutions, special schools, senior citizen centers, and other social service places.
