Patron of the Arts


Not all bouquets at the Art in Bloom's recent exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts were in vases.  For previous photos of the bouquets paired with pieces of art, click here and here.

ADDED LATER:  I just discovered from Irina's Moscow blog that yesterday was International Museum Day. I must remember it for next year!  I try to do my bit to honour art, in all its forms.  This is what Wikipedia said about the day:

The International Museum Day is a celebration that is held each year on or about 18 May. Each year, the Advisory Committee of the International Council of Museums (ICOM) defines a specific theme for International Museum Day.

The event provides the opportunity for museum professionals to meet the public and alert them to the challenges that museums face if they are to be — as in the ICOM definition of museums — 'an institution in the service of society and of its development'.

  3. International Museum Day sounds like a great concept. Julie and I visit a lot of museums on our travels. It impresses me how much excellent art is held in museums in countries that people overlook because they are not considered major centers for art.

  12. Chuckle. Like you, Kate, I think I log enough time in museums that I will be forgiven for having missed May 18.
