Spring has arrived on Park Avenue, in some shape or form.
A strip of the Manhattan avenue now looks like a fanciful garden, thanks to
artist Will Ryman, who wanted to get city residents out of a winter weather
On Friday night, 38 gigantic roses -- some as tall as 25 feet -- were
installed along a strip of Park The flowers, which are made of stainless steel and fiber glass resin, are
designed to look as if they are dancing up the avenue.
Ryman said they offer an escape from the bleak and harsh weather.
"If people come to see it, I'd like them to pay attention to the contrast of
the bright colors of the sculptures and the wintry backdrop of the city and
hopefully it will be a nice distraction from the cold winter and they would be
uplifted a little bit," he said.
The project will be fully installed by Tuesday and will be up until May 31,
when it is hoped real flowers will take their place. (Via Ny1)
