You can see Andy Warhol’s famous Marilyn Monroe pop art masterpiece at Rockefeller Center through next week!
It’s part of auction house Christie’s 20/21 “Century Marquee Week,” which is celebrating the art of the 20th and 21st centuries across the Rockefeller Center campus along with The Collection of Thomas and Doris Ammann.
Andy Warhol’s iconic Shot Sage Blue Marilyn (one quarter of the “Shot Marilyns” that consisted of four silkscreen canvases in different colors) is coming up for auction soon, and is likely to be the most expensive 20th century artwork ever sold at auction. In honor of the historic art event, the work will be displayed through an exhibition at Christie’s Auction House located at 20 Rockefeller Plaza from April 30 to May 12 between 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
And, the famous work will be projected onto the facades of 610 5th Avenue, 620 5th Avenue and 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
You can witness it on those buildings now through May 13, from 8 p.m. onward each night!
In addition to the colorful projections, some other odes to the artwork at Rockefeller Center include:
- A La Maison du Chocolat window display featuring Warhol’s Marilyn
- A “Shot Sage Marilyn” cocktail special at the newly opened Pebble Bar through May 9 with proceeds going to the foundation
- Lingua Franca themed sweaters are for sale at the entrance to the galleries
- Custom Moleskine notebooks are for sale at the entrance to the galleries
