High Art

September 9, 2004

Keith Godard, an instructor in the MFA Design Department, has just created what might be the highest work of art in New York City: installed 86 stories up in the Empire State Building’s observation deck is a series of 10 enameled panels that Godard designed to serve as visual guides to the city’s skyline and landmarks. He was selected for this prestigious project by fellow faculty member Dorothy Twining Globus, who was working on the building’s audio tour and wrote the captions for Godard’s panels. The panels are now a permanent part of the observation deck, which is open 9am to midnight every day, at 350 Fifth Avenue. Admission is $12 for adults, $7 for children.
