My Visit to Art in Bloom

Attending the North Carolina Museum of Art’s annual Art in Bloom exhibit was on my list of things to do. The show was as beautiful as I expected! Art in Bloom offers forty-three stunning flower displays created by North Carolina-based floral designers with this year’s special guest Joseph Massie, from Liverpool, England. He is the youngest person to win five consecutive RHS gold medals and four best-in-show awards at the world-renowned RHS Chelsea Flower Show held in London, England. 

The talented floral designers did not skimp on their imagination. Gorgeous blooms and plants showed an array of lines, color, form, space, and textures inspired by a piece of artwork displayed at the museum. It was easy to spot the two works of art that went together. The art-inspired floral arrangements were displayed on a pedestal near the designer’s chosen museum artwork. The information list on each pedestal holding the floral design kept visitors well informed. It included:

  • The type of flowers used in the design.
  • A photo of the designer’s chosen artwork.
  • The floral designer’s name.
  • The North Carolina city where they live

When you are ready for delicious food and drinks the museum offers sumptuous fare, cocktails, wines, and a coffee bar. Sit back and enjoy and chat about the beauty of what you have just witnessed! This gallery of photographs features some of my favorites from the show.
