Milwaukee Art Museum 'Art in Bloom' 2013 Gallery
Last weekend those looking for a way to escape dreary weather, get a jump start on spring and become inspired by the beauty of nature and the creativity of local artists found what they were looking for at the Milwaukee Art Museum’s sixth annual   ‘Art in Bloom’ . This annual event, billed as “A Tribute to Art and Flowers”, brings together some of Southeastern Wisconsin’s finest floral designers to interpret pieces of art from the museum’s collection. The result is an already spectacular venue made sublime with floral fragrance, color & form. Art in Bloom has steadily gained in popularity since its inception and attendance for the four days has grown to over 15,000. This year’s event coincides with the 125 th anniversary of the Milwaukee Art Museum and included not only exquisite floral displays but also a garden themed marketplace as well as seminars and workshops offered by nationally recognized experts in garden and floral design. The opening night festivities included an ‘Iron Designer’ Competition in which floral designers competed against one another, and the clock, to create an award winning design.
Each year a panel of judges selects three winners from among the many magnificent floral designs.
First Place:
Shades of Violet by Frantisek Kupka
floral design by Alka Bhargava
Second Place:
Untitled by Donald Judd
floral design by Greg Leyba, Samantha Rodgers & Ted Steffens
