Happy Birthday, Mr. Carnegie!


On November 25, 2017, in honor of Andrew Carnegie’s birthday, the Empire State Building joined in the celebration of the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy by illuminating its iconic tower in the medal’s tartan colors (navy, purple, and yellow). To the left is Montse Bernal’s vivid interpretation of the symbolic lighting, which paid tribute to the great philanthropist while continuing the celebrations around the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy with the launch of its #GivingHero campaign.
