An Ode to NYC

About An Ode to NYC

NYCxDESIGN's city-wide exhibition, An Ode to NYC, returns each year to re-connect people to the heartbeat of New York City's design scene. For each edition of the poster campaign, NYCxDESIGN taps into the expansive design ecosystem of the city, partnering with a host of showrooms, cultural institutions, and cutting-edge design businesses to showcase the original works, as well as appointing a new crop of talented designers who were tasked with painting a vision of tomorrow with one-of-a-kind poster designs. Thanks to this spirit of collaboration and participation across the design sector, An Ode to NYC reaches thousands of New Yorkers, channeling the city’s unique capacity to support our community through design.

The 2020 and 2021 collection of Ode to NYC posters were on view in window front locations across showrooms, studios, retailers, restaurants, and cultural venues. They were also showcased digitally on the expansive screens installed at The Oculus at Westfield World Trade Center, Fulton Center, and on-board the NYC Ferry’s fleet.
