Giant Floral Displays Popping Up Around Pittsburg
Floral installations have been popping up in random places such as garbage cans all over Pittsburg. The florals were the third in a series of pop-up floral installations by Fox and the Fleur owner Anne Dickson, who has operated her full-service, online floral business from her Fox Chapel garage since 2016.
“It’s a way to bring joy, even momentary joy, into people’s lives,” she told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about the whimsical displays.
A mother of three boys who previously worked for Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce & Gabbana, Dickson says she came up with the idea for the installations after seeing florist Lewis Miller Design’s “Flower Flash” project in New York City.
In February, she installed her first display, wrapping garlands of flowers around the columns of Shadyside’s Family House — which provides a “home away from home” for patients and their families seeking medical treatment in Pittsburgh.
“To all of the healthcare workers and all of the patients and their families, this one’s for you!” Dickson wrote on Instagram of the project.
Later that month, she spruced up her hometown area, coating a light pole with flowers. In early March, she struck again, creating an enormous bouquet atop a recycling bin. She also used sidewalk chalk to quote French artist Henri Matisse’s famous line, “There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”
Dickson told the Post-Gazette the recycling can project was particularly inspired because the already-cut flowers — from supplier BW Wholesale Florist in the Strip District — would have been thrown away had she not repurposed them.
The pop-up displays will continue to sprout up across the city, possibly through April, Dickson says — and suggestions as to where are welcome. To follow along, visit Fox and the Fleur’s instagram account here.
