Recently Will Ryman's "Roses" popped up on the median of Park Avenue. I don't spend as much time as I used to on the east side so I hadn't seen them in person till this week. The roses are made from fiberglass and stainless steel. Apparently some people aren't so impressed with them. I think they are fun and a great splash of color during the cold dull winter. I didn't walk all 10 blocks of the installation, but since they will be there till May 31st I might have a chance to see the others. PS. sorry for the cell phone pictures...
