I aimed to showcase every hue of the rainbow, transforming the Bourbon Steak patio into a vivid oasis, featuring two 8 feet tall, hand-painted Lady Liberty statues, a large drip flag and a suspended disco ball installation. The works invite guests to “Pledge Allegiance to Color,” symbolizing unity and embracing the beauty of diversity.
Debuting on June 25, 2023 as part of Pride and to kick off summer, the installation will celebrate individuality and diversity, creating an inclusive and colorful home for an ongoing summer series, seasonal specials and more.
Marc Bromley, the Regional Vice President and General Manager at Four Seasons Hotel, Washington expressed overwhelming excitement as he announced the collaboration with Maggie O'Neill. “Together, we honor the diverse community that resides within the heart of DC. Through the gorgeous, multicolored display that Maggie and her team have created, our tranquil patio will undergo a transformation, becoming a destination for celebrations, inviting our community to toast to their individuality throughout the summer and beyond.”
The adorned Bourbon Steak patio will transform into a lively celebration of summer and all things colorful.
By pledging allegiance to color, we give ourselves permission to live authentically and joyfully. The Liberty of Color' celebrates the freedom and intrinsic beauty of individualism, bringing joy and delight through visual art. The collection of sculptures, paintings, accessories and the overhead installation both literally and figuratively celebrate the colorful nature of our nation, our city and our community.
