Art in Bloom exhibits imaginative floral interpretations of selected works of art from the MIA's permanent collection, created by both commercial florists and individual artists, on display from April 25 to 28, 2013.
This year the Art in Bloom signature artwork, Hurdy Gurdy Man (Chrysanthemums), by contemporary artist Jennifer Steinkamp, will be featured.
There are large scale displays outside and in the lobby. The scent of flowers is everywhere throughout the museum. Many of the floral artist will be on hand to talk about their work, so people can stop and listen to those that interest them.
Looking forward to a fun filled, spring inspired day!
