When the New York City landmark of the Rockefeller Centennial opens for the 2018-19 season, a mural honoring the late founder and architect John D. Rockefeller will be in the middle of its grand reopening.
The painting, which will be on the south side of the building, is a large black-and-white portrait of the architect, who was born on October 19, 1875, in the Bronx.
The portrait is titled, “The Architect and the Artistic Vision,” and is meant to be an homage to D.H. Rockefeller’s work in the art and architecture of the 19th century.

Instead, it will be displayed at Rockefeller Center, which is currently undergoing renovations, but which will still open to the public on January 12.
According to the website of the New New Orleans Center, the new mural will include a larger portion of the original and will include the text, “You will be able to see the artist in the frame of the mural.
He is not just an artist, he is a visionary.
That is why he has inspired so many artists to come and work on his behalf.”
The Rockefeller Center is also set to host an outdoor concert and museum on Saturday, December 4, 2017 at 7 p.m.
It will be the first time the Rockefeller Plaza will host a live concert in New Orleans since 1963, when the Louisiana Purchase concert hall hosted the Grateful Dead’s 1969 show at the Plaza.
