The Art in Bloom Roadshow
viaZoom, for HWGC members
and the Community at Large
Each Spring, local garden clubs apply to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to be assigned a work of art to interpret through floral design. The MFA started Art in Bloom in 1976, and the concept is now popular in art museums across the country. During a non-Covid year, thousands of attendees visit the MFA during the 4-day Art in Bloom event, however this year Zoom tours took the place of in-person viewings.
We were pleased to have the Art in Bloom Roadshow where Christine Sampson, a MFA senior associate floral designer, together with Lisa Gaquin, an art guide and Carolyn Eliis, a floral guide, presented a Zoom talk, taking viewers behind-the-scenes at Art in Bloom and showing us stunning examples of floral interpretations of MFA art objects from years past.
