The anonymous art collective behind the Griffith Park Teahouse that showered an alley in downtown L.A. with flower petals earlier this year is returning with an entirely new floral art installation later this month. The follow-up installation, known as Petal Drop LA (02), will take place on Sunday, May 29, and this time feature a celebration of L.A.'s brilliantly purple jacaranda blossoms. The public will be invited to visit an industrial site—the location of which will be revealed around sunrise that morning—as well as the surrounding neighborhood near downtown where thousands of fallen blossoms from local trees have been collected, sorted and processed. As with the previous installation, few details have been released about the event, but in a release the collective says that there will be "a surreal factory that will vanish by noon."

The collective also tells LAist that Petal Drop LA (02) will offer an entirely new experience, rather than a redo of the previous one.

The event is free and open to the public. Also, as a heads up, the installations will take place outdoors and the sites are within walking distance of one another. So, you might want to wear comfortable shoes. Street parking will also be available in the area. And judging by the crowds that showed up for Petal Drop LA (01), you can probably expect a massive turnout.

The location of Petal Drop LA (02) will be revealed at sunrise on Sunday, May 29, via Twitter (@petaldropLA), Instagram (@petaldropLA) and a recorded message at (323) 905-4574.
