50 Years of Pride
This was the cover art for the “50 Years of Pride” issue of The New York Times special section. Half a century ago, police and patrons clashed during a raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in Greenwich Village. That riot poured out onto Christopher Street, where the pride colors are now painted, intersecting with the street crosswalk lines. That clash helped spark a movement that continues to this day. Designed to commemorate that historic moment, the cover draws inspiration from the pride colors painted on the Christopher Street crosswalk, turning them into a 50.
