Art in Bloom
Thursday, April 11 to Sunday, April 14
Every second year, the galleries blossom with a feast for the senses—a lush exhibit of floral designs and the art that inspires them. Professional and non-professional florists will interpret 15th to 21st-century works from the WAG collection. Mark your calendar for this festival celebrating spring, art, and creative community! Entry is included in your Gallery admission price.
