Unveiling: Interwoven by Atelier Cho Thompson

Monday, November 22, 5:30 pm

Flatiron North Public Plaza on Broadway, Fifth Avenue, and 23rd Street

Presented in collaboration with the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership, Interwoven by Atelier Cho Thompson celebrates the joys of reconnecting in public space. Its interactive archways are activated by color-coded sensors; when two or more people pass through sensors of the same color, Interwoven responds with corresponding lights and musical compositions by local artists inspired by the installation’s themes.

As part of the installation, the story wall weaves together responses to the prompt: “I dream of a world where together we can…” During the kickoff event, share your responses and the resulting narratives will become a tapestry of voices documenting this challenging, yet hopeful moment in time. The prompt was selected by Youth Fellows from the People’s Bus NYC, a community-led, intergenerational initiative focused on engaging people in NYC’s civic life through beauty and joy.

After you share your response, stick around for light bites by Eataly, frozen hot-chocolate-flavored custard from Shake Shack, hot chocolate from Flatiron Plate, and music by The Jazz Gallery!
