Milwaukee Art Museum’s ‘Art in Bloom’ event returns after 2-year hiatus

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The popular Art in Bloom event will return to the Milwaukee Art Museum after a two-year hiatus.

Nearly 30 art-inspired floral installations will be on display in the galleries from April 7-10.

Each arrangement is created by a local florist who is inspired by a specific work of art from the museum’s collection.

This year, florists will interpret the paintings Saint Francis of Assisi in his tomb by Francisco de Zurbaran, Father Jacques (the wood gatherer) by Jules Bastien-Lepage, and the large-scale sculptural installations Trowel by Claes Oldenburg and edge of england by Cornelia Parker.
