Art in Bloom Preview Party
Enjoy a much-anticipated spring celebration. The Preview Party precedes four fun-filled days of the finest art, flowers, fashion, tours, speakers, and workshops at this annual spring extravaganza.
During the gala event, the Art in Bloom signature painting will be revealed—a recently acquired still-life painting by renowned French artist Eugène Delacroix. This masterpiece—Still Life with Dahlias, Zinnias, Hollyhocks and Plums—has been in a private collection and thus has never been in the public eye. Gala guests be among the first to see it.
The unveiling will be followed by a delicious French-inspired dinner. This is your chance to view 160 pedestal and commercial floral interpretations of artworks in Mia’s collection at their freshest and most fragrant.
