Art in Bloom – Milwaukee, WI

This weekend I went to Art in Bloom in Milwaukee with my mom and it was amazing! (I am an art appreciator and she has a small business in floral arranging, so it was a perfect match.) If you are unfamiliar, the event works like this… The museum picks about 40-50 art pieces to showcase. The pieces are randomly assigned to floral designers, who must use the piece for inspiration to create a floral arrangement. The arrangements are showcased for a few days and at the end a panel votes on a number of categories.

Guided tours were offered through the museum, as the pieces  are scattered around and matched up together. The tour-guide provided tidbits of information about the pieces and artists, which gave an extra added meaning to the experience. My favorite is below…

If you ever get the chance to go to this event, I hope you take advantage of it! It’s my understanding that it happens at art museums across the nation, so be sure to check out the area nearest to you, XOXO.
