Thomas Jefferson Arts Academy Teacher's Work Selected for Rockefeller Center’s Flag Project
Congratulations to Jennifer Feliciano, Graphic Arts Teacher at Thomas Jefferson Arts Academy, whose work has been selected as part of Rockefeller Center’s Flag Project. Out of over 1000 artists who contributed designs that celebrate the diverse culture, vibrant energy, and strength of New York City, Mrs. Feliciano’s piece was among those selected to be flown in a temporary art installation on the 193 poles surrounding the iconic Rink at Rockefeller Center. Mrs. Feliciano’s notes in her flag design description:
I am passionate about visual communications and the way imagery affects our world. I believe it should ignite conversation and create a way for people to connect through it. This design is a representation of creating connections; of crossing paths along the journey of everyday life and meeting others to share insights, dreams, dinner or a cab ride. This is what New York means to me: it is a place where I can enjoy the mundane and the novelty of the tourists and pause in the midst of the fast-paced environment and connect with them both.
