Art in Bloom is Here!

We are so excited for this weekend. Art in Bloom is Crystal Bridges’ annual celebration of the power of art combined with the beauty of nature. 11 talented florists from Northwest Arkansas have created 12 unique arrangements based off artworks in the museum’s permanent collection.

The flowers were installed in our galleries yesterday – here’s a sneak peek at some of them:

Early American Art Gallery

Florist: Cindy Stevenson, ZuZu’s Petals & Gifts; Artwork: The Gems of Brazil, Martin Johnson Heade

Modern Art Gallery

Florist: Diana Thompson, Samantha’s Garden; Artwork: Depression Bread Line, George Segal

Contemporary Art Gallery

Florist: Stephanie Green, Amaryllis Design; Artwork: No. 210/No. 211 (Orange), Mark Rothko

 

Don’t miss your chance to see them – this weekend only! The flowers will be in the galleries today through Monday (March 18). The map for all flower locations can be found below.

 

Flowers and Spring Break Specials

Have kids in tow? Spring Break Specials is also starting this weekend, beginning Saturday! Take a walk through the galleries to see the flowers, then head to the studios for free artmaking, games, and more. Spring Break Specials happens every afternoon, March 16-24 from 1-4 p.m.

As part of Spring Break Specials this Saturday and Sunday, kids can create floral arrangements in the lower lobby and leave them on the pedestal for all to see!
