In-house presentation | Rockefeller Center and the Image of a Titan, with Jared Simard

We were excited to welcome Jared Simard of New York University for an In-House presentation and discussion entitled “Rockefeller Center and the Image of a Titan.” The event took place on Friday, December 2, at 11:00 a.m. EST and was accessible to Kosmos members only.

To prepare for the conversation, you might like to look at the two images of titans below, try to identify any key iconography, and brainstorm associations between each and Rockefeller Center.
