Doris C. Freedman Plaza Central Park, 60th Street & 5th Avenue For eminent German artist Isa Genzken (b. 1948, Bad Oldesloe), the mass-produced white orchid has become the quintessential flower of our age: global, accessible, and open to interpretation. Rising to 28 and 34 feet respectively, the paired stems of Genzken’s towering sculpture wind elegantly skyward, capturing light and casting shadows in a play of rhyming forms. Two Orchids heralds the entrance to Central Park in voluptuous full flower, its pristine white petals free from any blemishes. It stands as an idealized, colossal version of the familiar plant: a civic monument to the perfect orchid, now the chosen ornament of contemporary cultureMore info See more free New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
