Considering the amount of variety NYC has to offer, each of the 10 artists’ interpretations are very different from one another, and the original, which featured the New York skyline and Statue of Liberty.

Once completed, the art will be put on display via the DKNY logo as outdoor installations around the world. Some of the high-profile locations include London’s Piccadilly Circus, New York’s Yankee Stadium and Hong Kong’s Canton Road.

In further support of the city, all of the artists have donated their work to Free Arts NYC, an organisation providing educational arts and mentoring programs to underserved children in the city. The company is currently auctioning the pieces of art on Paddle8 – an online auction house – giving everyone a chance to own one of the soon-to-be iconic pieces.
