This weekend, my friend Mary and I visited the Milwaukee Art Museum for their Art in Bloom event. The curators of the Art in Bloom exhibit pick forty-eight pieces from around the museum for local florists to use as inspiration for floral sculptures. The results were breath taking - not least of all because they combined art and flowers, two of my favorite things!
Here are some pictures of my favorite designs. I apologize for the quality of the photos; the lighting in the galleries was not ideal for my camera. I think you can still get the feel for how impressive these floral interpreations were. Most of these pieces received people's choice awards and some were official winners as well. What do you think of the floral interpretations? Think they nailed it or missed the mark?
