Art in Bloom florists are volunteer floral enthusiasts from a range of backgrounds. Anyone, regardless of floral arranging experience, is welcome to participate. Florists attend one of two orientation events in early February to select the work of art they plan to interpret with fresh flowers. To learn more, visit http://aibflorists.wordpress.com.
Art in Bloom thanks the following commercial florists for their participation in 2012. Look for their striking creations in public areas of the museum during the event. (And when shopping with these businesses, mention you saw their work at Art in Bloom!)
