The MFA “Art in Bloom” roadshow makes a stop at the Salem Athenaeum to create a holiday floral arrangement inspired by a famous painting. The presentation is an hour long, featuring half PowerPoint, half live floral demo, and 100% stunning results.
The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, was the first museum in the United States to introduce the public to a show of art and flowers – Art in Bloom – over 40 years ago. During a four-day period every spring, about 50 of the Museum’s art objects are interpreted through floral arrangements. Many other events happen during Art in Bloom, including lectures and Master Classes led by world-renowned floral designers, ongoing demonstrations of flower arranging, activities for children, and more. Art in Bloom is free to members, and is the busiest week of the year for the Museum. This presentation will give you some of its background and many examples of AIB designs.
The flower arrangement made at this event will be raffled off to an audience member.
