The Kaufman Organization has partnered with renowned street artist Tristan Eaton to complete a 100-foot-tall mural in the heart of NoMad, Manhattan. The artwork is positioned on the south-facing wall of 236 Fifth Avenue and depicts Evelyn Nesbit, a 20th century fashion icon, actress, and chorus girl who graced the magazine covers of Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, and Harper’s Bazaar magazines, among others.

Eaton’s latest piece interweaves a collage of images that were sourced by a team of local historians and preservationists to ensure the mural would contextually represent Nesbit’s story and the history of the NoMad area.

Additional work by Tristan Eaton can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection, multiple wall spaces and billboards around the city, as well as popular nightlife venues in downtown Manhattan.

  1. I read the details as to how it was showed from your evidence, you had help me as I did what I could see. Feeling only lovely and don’t use ninety minutes to look at it, so you put on some easy colors. But beautiful; trust me I don’t pretend to say like this, on the experience it was still going to prominent. No dangerous design to avoid, and try to cop your feel how it is beautiful on art. It’s smarter than I look or showing its colorful even more than the rest. Off duty as I am a reader, I have to get out from hot shaped on the wall now. (Thanks to YIMBY)

    • Please pardon me for stinking up the place: I think I see a bowl of beautiful word salad.
      (You’re welcome).

  2. And in 10 years when the building owner next to the mural wants to redevelop his property into a taller building, the NIMBYs will be out to protest the blocking of this NYC “history.”

  3. Your performance art sucks.
