12th annual Art in Bloom blossoms at Milwaukee Art Museum

As we await the arrival of a good, solid stretch of spring weather, Milwaukee Art Museum is opening this year's installment of the 12th annual Art in Bloom, which runs Thursday, April 11 through Sunday, April 14.

Forty floral installations inspired by works of art in the MAM collection will be on display throughout the art museum galleries during the long weekend event. The displays are created by floral and landscape designers and gardeners from around the reason.

"The fantastic and colorful floral installations inspired by works of art in our Collection are a highlight of spring in Milwaukee," said MAM's Director of Special Events Krista Renfrew. "Visitors appreciate the fresh and fragrant perspectives these floral experts bring to the galleries."

Programming tied to the event includes the Beauty in Bloom floral fashion show, Saturday night at 7 p.m., in beautiful Windhover Hall, featuring a runway show inspired by the "Bouguereau & America" exhibition, hors d'oeuvres, valet parking and a cash bar.

On Saturday morning at 11, the museum's Garden Club hosts the "Pruned" floral design competition in which four designers wow you with their inventive, rapid-fire pruning skills.

Complete details of Art in Bloom events can be found below.

Art is Bloom is included in regular Art Museum admission, which is $24 ($19 in advance) for adults, $22 for seniors and students, $5 for members of the museum and Educators Credit Union, and free for children 12 and under.

Guests who sign up for or renew a museum membership at the door during Art in Bloom get free admission for two, and those joining or renewing at the Family/Dual level or above also get a $10 Milaeger's gift card.
