Spring has Sprung on Avenue of the Americas



Grown Up Flowers have arrived on Avenue of the Americas! This public art installation, sponsored by the Avenue of the Americas Association, will delight pedestrians from 44th Street to 55th Street, although we could only find two of the six when searching for them today.

The six giant inflatable flowers, each with its own name, will give viewers a new and different perspective , as the installations sit, lounge and float along Sixth Avenue. They are secured in place with cables, and lit from the inside for nighttime viewing.

The large inflatables can stand as tall as 30-feet and as wide as 30-feet long.  They are the creation of the New York-based creative studio, Playlab, Inc., who you may remember from their 2010 + Pool initiative to build the world’s first water filtering floating pool in New York.
