Every spring, FAM hosts Art in Bloom. This popular event invites local floral designers, garden clubs, and community members to interpret the art in our galleries with flower arrangements. This year the tradition continued with Art in Bloom: an Online Floral Challenge For Everyone! Explore our online gallery of artwork submissions and gallery of category winners

Raise a glass with us for the Art in Bloom Champagne Reception. Join the FAM staff, docents, and community members for a short conversation about this year’s Art in Bloom. Hear about what inspired us, how we put it together, and what we enjoyed most in the special video above!
