Now Blooming on the Beach

We’ve posted a few times about Will Ryman’s 58th Street currently on view just outside the Phillips. Though it currently resides at the corner of 21st and Q Streets, the sculpture is named for the cross street on New York’s Park Avenue where it debuted earlier this year. Ryman’s 65th Street is now in bloom more than the few blocks away its title suggests. It adorns the beach in a special Art Basel Miami installation through December 4. Take a look at it in the Post‘s slideshow of some of the festival’s most intriguing art.

“The petals in the blossoms are fiberglass covering stainless steel. The way they’re made is that I molded the petals; I wanted it to have a handmade quality to it. So, we’re pounding steel to get these shapes.”
