NYC as a rosegarden

Artist, Will Ryman is pushing up roses in NYC! Giant roses are now on display on Park Avenue until May 31st. There are 38 red and pink roses and 20 rose petals (6 of which double as lawn chairs). Beautiful! It's got me dreaming of Spring!

“With these roses I wanted to do something that was larger than life and site-specific. In my work I always try to combine fantasy with reality. In the case of The Roses, I tried to convey New York City’s larger than life qualities through scale; creating blossoms which are imposing, humorous, and hopefully beautiful,” stated artist Will Ryman.
