OMG! Bagels pops up this Sunday and lasts through the end of the year.

Chestnut Hill's The Street retail development, located along Boylston Street, is now featuring bagels for a short time, both edible and not. New York-based artist Hanna Liden, a native of Sweden, debuted a project today called Everything — a trio of bagel sculptures. One sculpture is a single bagel, another is a stack of three bagels, and the third is five bagels with a tulip coming out of the center. The latter stands 15 feet tall. The non-edible bagels will be on display through the winter. (The project was previously installed in New York City; this is its local launch.)

Meanwhile, for those seeking a bagel to actually eat, Waltham-based OMG! Bagels, which distributes around the Boston area, will open the doors to its first storefront this Sunday, November 22, in The Street's The Pop-Up space at 7 Boylston St., and it will be there through the end of December, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

The shop will sell 18 varieties of New York-style, boiled-then-baked bagels, cream cheeses, and small replicas of Liden's sculptures.
