Fifth Avenue Blooms by Van Cleef & Arpels
Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly
Ten colorful sculptures complemented by live flowers transform twelve blocks along Fifth Avenue into a floral sketchbook created by French illustrator Charlotte Gastaut. Arches, benches, pergolas and other sculptural elements in the artist’s signature bright colors and energetic lines punctuate Fifth Avenue from 47th to 59th street, perfect for photo opportunities. All are invited to step out of the hectic urban landscape and into the artist’s illustrations of wildflowers, birds in flight and other natural elements in her signature motif.
Information on weekend live performances and children’s activities at Pulitzer Fountain plus givesaways coming soon. Some Fifth AVe stores are offering free gifts & treats.
Presented by Fifth Avenue Association and Van Cleef & Arpels.
