Art in Bloom
Sunday, April 14, 2019 from 11am to 5pm
Every second year, the galleries blossom with a feast for the senses. Experience Art in Bloom's lush exhibit of floral designs and the art that inspires them, including the centrepiece of this year's event – a massive living wall of Norval Morrisseau’s painting Androgyny. Professional and non-professional florists will interpret 15th to 21st-century artworks highlighting the WAG collection. Don't miss this festival celebrating spring, art, and creative community at the WAG!
