Midway artist part of ‘Roseville in Bloom’
Local artist Daniela Bianchini, a native of Argentina now based in Nokomis is one of the artists chosen to participate in the Roseville in Bloom public art project, a celebration of “20 Roses in 2020.” Bianchini designed and decorated a seven-foot-tall rose statute. The statutes are on display in public spaces throughout Roseville from July 1-Oct. 31, 2020, offering people of all ages a safe, free public art experience to enjoy in the summer and fall. The rose statues were built by TivoliToo, the local company that created the Peanuts characters for the “Peanuts on Parade” public art project in Saint Paul. The circumference of each rose blossom is 100 feet and the total weight of the statue (rose, rose pot and base) is 658 pounds.
Free rose maps are available at numerous locations throughout Roseville, or download maps at www.rosevilleinbloom.com
