‘Mad Men’ will be immortalized—just for the summer—with a sculpture outside of the Time-Life Building at 1271 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan.

The building is home to the offices of Time Inc magazines such as Fortune, Sports Illustrated, Time, Entertainment Weekly, and Essence. In the show, it’s home to the fictional Sterling, Cooper & Partners, which early on in the series relocates its offices there from Madison Avenue.

It’s under wraps as to what the sculpture is made of, and what it depicts, but the show’s creator Matthew Weiner — along with cast members Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss and John Slattery — will all be on hand to unveil the work of art on Monday, March 23.

by Leah Umansky

I will herald my ghosts

I will braid our pasts

I will unlid secrets

I will forest bruises

I will strange love

I will cabinet the lies

I will haunch the hurt

I will expunge order

I will temper the liked

I will pale the bad

I will away the soiled

I will hush the undone

I will stab the fault

I will dream the lie

I will sweet the love

I will still the brood

I will play the stars

I will pronounce the naked

I will index chance

I will darling the crookt

I will soldier the dreams

I will pageant the breaks

I will cycle the jitters

I will sing the caring

I will belly the upset

I will feast comfort

I will turn the certain

I will empty the dark

I will flame the barbarous

I will shun the ills

I will repine…
