The museum will once again blossom with the vibrant colors of spring as we celebrate the revival of Art in Bloom. See the creative floral displays inspired by fine art, take part in special programs and events, enjoy family-friendly activities, and much more! 

Art in Bloom’s stature will be heightened on a regional, national, and international stage by:

  • expanding reach in recruitment of floral artists,
  • creating themed activations tailored for visitors,
  • identifying vignettes, genres, and specific artists throughout the museum to inspire floral artistry (rather than solely relying on individual pieces of art for inspiration),
  • improving visitor experiences and discoveries throughout the galleries—and more!

The museum recommends that visitors planning to dine at the Terrace Café that weekend make reservations due to anticipated demand. Make reservations by phone (513-639-2986).
