Two years ago, a surprising piece of public art sprouted up in Highland Park, along the Queens-Brooklyn border.

A series of towering daffodils made from canvas were attached to poles, where they blew in the breeze, all of them moving in the same way and at the same time.

The work of Brooklyn artist Daniele Frazier, top, the piece, called “The Giant Flowers,” caused a buzz in the park, which had never been the site of public art before.

An exhibit tracing the origins of “The Giant Flowers” opened this week at Oak Ridge, the mansion in Forest Park Trust.

Called “Small, Medium, Large,” the exhibition includes scale models and works on paper relating to the public artwork.
