Art in Bloom

Last Thursday evening I went to the Minneapolis Institute of Art event, Art in Bloom. The object of this event is for floral designers to create a piece that reflects or mirrors an object or painting in the museum. The viewing of the art and the floral designs is accompanied by wine and music, and there was a mob of people there.

We were greeted at the entrance with this grand bouquet.

Here are some favorites.

Above is a Japanese helmet -- artist unknown.

This the floral piece created to accompany it.

In the gallery associated with American Indian art I found this.

The original object, an American Indian coat is in the rear with the floral piece in the front.

And how this? Here is Tornado by Julius Holm.

And here is the floral piece created to mirror it.

It was a lovely evening at  the museum. I resolve to go back about several times during the coming year, probably in the morning when it will be more quiet to take a look at both new and old familiar things.
