Join us for a festival celebrating spring, art, and creative community! Experience a lush exhibit of floral designs and the art that inspires them. Professional and non-professional floral designers will interpret 15th to 21st-century works from the WAG collection, modeled after long-running Art in Bloom events at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Entry is included in your Gallery admission price.
