Holiday Art in Bloom Fitchburg Art Museum

Add some color and creativity to your holiday season. Join the Holiday Art in Bloom online floral challenge.

We have chosen a selection of winter themed artworks to interpret from our collection, including several that have not been on display in our galleries for some time. You can view these images here or on our social media on Facebook and Instagram. Or you can sign up to receive an email with selection of images here.

You may be as creative as you wish, but all interpretations must have something related to flowers. This can include plastic flowers, houseplants, acorns, twigs, and even vegetables. Don’t have any flowers? You can make them out of paper, scraps of cloth, newspaper, aluminum foil, or a variety of other objects you may be able to find in your house.  Make a quiche or bake a cake. Create an ornament or decoration for your table. Have fun and make it festive!

Please click here for ideas of ways to make flowers from household materials, including ways to make an ornament with flowers.

You can interpret as many times as you wish. You are not limited to one submission. View the current submissions here.
