Giant, 25-Feet-High Roses Will "Grow" On Park Avenue

Come Tuesday, roses are set to bloom at a very unseasonable time of year. And don't worry, it's not in the same apocalyptical vein as all those dying animals. Instead, all the answers lie with artist Will Ryman, who, in conjuction with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation and Paul Kasmin Gallery, is transforming Park Avenue into a Tim Burton-esque garden with 38 sculptures of rose blossoms (some reaching 25 feet in height!). Look out for brass ladybugs, aphids, beetles, and bees hanging out in the blooms, plus 20 accompanying sculptures of rose petals—six of which will double as lawn chairs—scattered around the Park Avenue Mall between 63rd and 65th streets. If you can't jet off to, say, Tulum, it's a nice way to inject some summer goodness into this bleak mid-winter. (A Cup Of Jo)
