Timeless Art & Fresh Flowers

Join our 32nd annual Friends of the Institute’s celebration of spring with over 150 floral arrangements designed to interpret the diverse artworks in the museum’s collection. Art in Bloom is free and open to the public. Funds are raised by donations from our generous sponsors and also from revenue from ticketed events, lectures, selling Art in Bloom programs, and wonderful items from the Pop-up Garden Shop. Check the daily schedule on back for details. Proceeds raised provide educational tours and transportation for school children as well as support for exhibitions, activities, and free lectures throughout the year.

Last year over 82,000 students made trips to the MIA for guided tours! We thank all those whose generous support and hard work make Art in Bloom possible.

With kindest regards,
Arna Yetter and JeanMarie Burtness
Art in Bloom 2015 Co-Chairs
