This four-day festival (April 25 – 28) invites floral designers from throughout the region to imaginatively interpret works of art on view in the Museum’s galleries and presents them alongside those works for the community’s enrapt enjoyment.
Art In Bloom includes prize categories for featured florists, an incredible preview party with a nature-inspired runway show, floral arranging workshops, art-making activities, live musical performances, and more!
Art In Bloom serves to elevate the craft of floral design, providing a unique venue for the display and recognition of the artistic efforts of talented florists in our region.
Proceeds from Art In Bloom events benefit the Museum’s Art Acquisition Fund. Recent high-profile acquisitions have helped energize attention and increase patronage at YOUR Art Museum. They are utilized as teaching tools for over 6,500 children who attend educational tours, and the 60,000 patrons who visit the Museum annually. None of this would be possible without a robust Art Acquisition Fund.
Last year’s event featured 28 floral designers from 15 companies interpreting 30 works of art. We welcomed 1,600 patrons (the largest Museum event in recent history), raised over $21,000 and awarded $2,000 in prize money. This unique event, inspired by spring, is a wonderful marriage of floral interpretation and fine art. Tickets go on sale March 15. Learn more about Art In Bloom by visiting www.sgfmuseum.org.
