Art in Bloom features inventive floral arrangements on display in the  galleries for two to three days in June. The arrangements, created by members of the Marion Garden Group and other local designers, are inspired by artworks in the MAC exhibition currently on view. Participants, working individually or in pairs, create floral interpretations of a specific piece of their choosing.
