art in bloom

Art in Bloom celebrates the artistic talents of local floral designers by featuring interpretations of art in the Museum’s collection.

Selected works of art in the collection will be chosen. Those works will reflect a broad range of styles, subject matter, time periods, and cultures.

Each designer chooses one work of art to interpret in a live, fresh flower arrangement. All arrangements will be on display during this 3-day event.
