‘HEARYOURNAMELIKELIGHTPASSINGBY’ – Permanent Installation at Concourse Lobby of 75 Rockefeller Plaza, New York

Feb 1, 2016

Markus Linnenbrink has received an important commission: a seven by ninety foot poured resin painting will be installed in the Concourse Lobby of 75 Rockefeller Plaza in New York.

Located on 51st Street between 5th & 6th Avenue is the limestone clad Rockefeller tower with views of it’s legendary skating rink. The 1947 building is historically significant as the original headquarters of Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company. The building underwent a recent comprehensive renovation by Architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox in New York.  The renovation includes a Block to Block Concourse Lobby connecting 51st and 52nd Street where Markus Linnenbrink’s 7 x 90 foot poured resin painting will be installed. Constructed in continuous panels, the ninety foot painting is the largest discreet work achieved by Linnenbrink. The painting will be visible to those walking inside or outside the concourse as it stretches across the limestone clad wall.
