The MFA (Museum of Fine Arts) recently hosted "Art in Bloom." It's an annual tradition, but this was my first experience with it. Essentially, there are 50 flower arrangements created to reflect --in some way -- a particular piece or collection of art. You can hear my Mom and I discuss the exhibit on our podcast. Take a peek:
For me, some of them were spot on and some of them were just kind of "eh." Vases made a big difference. And, I preferred the arrangements that reflected the spirit of the artwork rather than, "Hey, there's red over here." I did, however, feel very inspired by the notion of creating something based on my favorite paintings. I feel like that's a project that's coming down the pipeline!
Art in Bloom is an event that many museums hold each year (though, the MFA here in Boston has the distinction of being the original). Does your local museum participate?
Thanks for stopping by!
