Art in Bloom at the MAC

Thursday, June 13 - Saturday, June 15, 2024
Reception: Thursday, June 13, 5:00-7:00pm

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. The MAC also offers various flower-related workshops during Art in Bloom, such as floral arranging or watercolor painting. All are invited to participate, and anyone can submit an arrangement!
