"Art in Bloom" at Milwaukee Art Museum

Art in Bloom, the Milwaukee Art Museum's annual celebration of art, flowers, and spring, returns April 20–23, 2023. 

A news release says the event welcomes visitors to experience floral installations throughout the galleries. Created by nearly 30 of the region's top floral designers, the installations interpret renowned artworks in the Museum's collection.

Each floral designer will exhibit a unique arrangement in response to an artwork of their selection. This year, interpreted artworks include Sam Gilliam's draped canvas painting Carousel Merge 2, Alexander Calder's Red, Black, Blue, Gaetano Cusati's Still Life with Fish, Tara Donovan’s Bluffs, and Pablo Picasso's The Cock of Liberation (Le Coq de la Liberation). The designers will compete for Judges’ Awards, which will be announced live in Lubar Auditorium on Thursday, April 20, at 6 p.m. People’s Choice Awards winners will be announced Friday through Sunday on the museum’s website.
