Art In Bloom Call for Submissions

Calling all floral designers! Art in Bloom returns to Crystal Bridges this spring as a part of our Spring Break Specials!

In celebration of art, nature, and creativity, Art in Bloom is a four-day event that seeks to combine the power of art with the beauty of nature. Floral arrangements, made by talented, regional, floral designers, are paired and displayed beside artworks found in the museum’s galleries.

We invite all interested florists and floral designers to design a floral arrangement inspired by an artwork at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. If selected, your arrangement will be displayed in the galleries from Friday, March 24, to Monday, March 27, 2022. Designers will be selected by January 20.

Will you be the next floral arranger to find his/her work in the Crystal Bridges galleries? Send us your idea and application today!
