Park Ave bouquet

Yesterday, I was walking past Park Ave to get to the 59th street subway station when I came across this huge installation by Will Ryman. After a little more research I found out that this project, sponsored by nyc parks, spans ten glorious blocks. So, if you're in the neighborhood of 57-67th street on Park Ave, you NEED to check these sculptures out. Apparently some of the rose petals are designed to be chairs! One day maybe when the days get longer (and warmer) I'm going to walk the full ten blocks to see the whole progression of sizes and shapes.

I love the installation because it is so unexpected on Park Ave. And so cheerful! Definitely reminds me that spring is right around the corner contrary to what the weatherman is saying tonight (uh, hello 14 inch blizzard). Check these sculptures out- they're outside so it's free to see em- stop and smell the roses!
