Highlights in New York, London and Sydney

New York Introducing a burst of colour to an otherwise dreary thoroughfare, The Roses is a unique installation on Park Avenue by the larger-than-life urban sculptor Will Ryman. The work features 38 blossom sculptures – bugs included – towering 25 feet high, scattered between 57th and 67th Streets. The blossoms are on display throughout May 2011 and will signify the much-anticipated start of the blooming season in the Big Apple.
