Art in Bloom 2022 and 100th anniversary of the Friends of the Institute at Minneapolis Institute of Art.

Art in Bloom 2023

Art in Bloom, the annual celebration of art and flowers, presented by the Friends of the Institute, will take place April 27 – April 30, 2023.

Free and open to the public, Art in Bloom exhibits imaginative floral interpretations of selected works of art from Mia’s permanent collection, created by more than 100 individual and commercial florists.

Over the course of the four-day festival, everyone is invited to experience the floral beauty and fragrance throughout the museum, take a free guided tour, and enjoy family activities for our younger guests. Admission to the museum will remain free during Art in Bloom.

The opportunity to purchase tickets for additional events including Party in Bloom and special lectures will be available soon.
