In partnership with Art Production Fund and contemporary artist Hanna Liden, Kiehl’s is dedicating “Everything” to Manhattan. “Everything” features the bagel, a much beloved NYC staple, at a monumental scale! For the artist, “the bagel – a circle with no beginning an no end – is evocative of the eternal cycle of city life. The black spray paint is a romantic tribute to the darkness and grime, which are essential and beautiful characteristics of our city.”
