I stumbled across these images on the Free People Blog (which by the way, always has gobs of funky and fabulous inspiration) and I couldn’t resist sharing. I need to get out more, smell the grass, feel the sunshine. Do you make time to to just be outside? Are the great outdoors part of your daily routine or is walking to the mailbox the extent of your trek? I’m the latter (only my husband gets the mail … i.e., no sunshine at all.)
As for the amazing story behind the images – In 2003, artist Anna Schuleit was commissioned to create a massive public art installation called Bloom at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center (MMHC) which was slated for demolition. Nearly 28,000 potted flowers filled almost every square foot of the MMHC including corridors, stairwells, offices and even a swimming pool for the showcase.
