Rarely do I promote charities and/or donations in this blog, but today, I would like to bring one to your attention, one that has a great place in my heart. Perhaps in any New Yorker’s heart. It is a documentary of our beloved architectural gem, the Four Seasons Restaurant, one of the most iconic and glamour emblems of this city, designed and coordinated by Philip Johnson in Mies’ Seagram building. So many talents participated in the creation of this magical and inspiring ensemble: textile designer Marie Nichosl created the upholstery; graphic designer Elain Lustig Cohen did the famed signage and Emil Antonucci the logo featured four stylized trees symbolizing the four seasons; Richard Kelly was responsible for the lighting; sculptor Richard Lippold made the ceiling pieces; and Mark Rothko painted a series of abstractions that ended up excluded; and this is just to name a few of those artists that came to create what has become known as the world's most beautiful restaurant. As the New York Historical Society has become the main fiscal sponsor of this documentary, created by Michael Ellenbogen, with the goal of recording the 57-year history of this institution, home of generations of leaders, celebrities, artists, politicians, families, all contributions to this production are 100% tax deductible. It is a great opportunity to support a project that comes to catpure hisrical moment that lasted decades.
