What is Art in Bloom ?
The phrase Art In Bloom is often used as the title of various
exhibits held annually, usually in spring, in art museums.
The phrase was created by a Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, volunteer,
Lorraine M. Pitts who also helped found the
Danforth Museum in Framingham, MA.
The original exhibit was held in the Museum of Fine Arts
in Boston in 1976, where it is held annually.
The exhibit is composed of traditional visual art pieces and corresponding flower arrangements done by local professional florists and garden club members.
