Will Ryman's "Rose on 65th Street" at The Frist




I finally got around to seeing the giant rose sculpture on the Broadway-side lawn of The Frist today. It's one of 38 sculptures that artist Will Ryman (no relation) created to line New York's Park Avenue last Spring, but its new home is Nashville — it was installed last month and will remain up through December. With details like massive insects and thorny stems, the sculpture is monumental but still pretty, flamboyant but not overly kitschy, and it deserves your attention.


Watch a video of its installation at The Frist after the jump.
