The Anonymous Artists Behind Petal Drop LA Are Back with a Mysterious Pop-Up Installation

You’ll have to wake up at sunrise if you want to get in on the action

In February, hundreds of Angelenos lined up in a DTLA alleyway for Petal Drop LA (01), a guerrilla art installation in which 7,000 cups of pink flower petals were rained down on viewers from dawn until dusk. It was a one-time-only gig, until it wasn’t (aka today): the same anonymous art collective responsible for PDLA01 (which also happens to take credit for the Griffith Park Teahouse) will be staging a sequel, aptly titled Petal Drop LA (02).

Hello LA! We’re hard at work on Petal Drop LA 02, celebrating LA’s jacarandas on an industrial scale.

On Sunday, May 29, PDLA02 will celebrate L.A.’s purple jacaranda blossoms with a series of pop-up exhibitions meant to juxtapose the beauty of nature with an as-yet-to-be-disclosed industrial setting near downtown L.A. The secret site will be revealed at sunrise via Instagram and Twitter, and the event will begin at 6:17 AM (just, you know, ‘cause). The temporary exhibit will (hopefully) last until noon, and admission is free.
