Hudson Yards hosts an exhibition of incredible flower sculptures
Red carnations, purple hydrangeas, orange dahlias and pink roses have been transformed into enormous sculptures depicting travels around the world in a new exhibit at Hudson Yards. The free exhibition, called VOYAGE, will run until October 15. TimeOut writes about this.
Sixteen mannequins depict iconic global destinations including Mexico, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, Australia, West Africa, Japan, Scotland, China, India, Brazil, Italy, France, England, Spain, Greece and Canada. The exhibition draws on ancient monuments, diverse traditions, festivals and fashion to take visitors on a journey around the world.
World-renowned custom flower show company Fleurs de Villes has partnered with local New York City florists to create the exhibit, as it has for the past several years.
