Art in Bloom


Every April the Minneapolis Institute of Arts has an event called "Art in Bloom," which features floral arrangements next to a piece of art.  The objective is to have the florist produce an artful bouquet that complements a work of art.  In this case the florist used bark and marigolds to replicate the Chinese horse behind it.  We flock to the museum during the three days of the event to see art in many shapes and forms.

To see how other bloggers interpreted Camera Critters, go here.


Incidentally, this is my 1,500 post on Visual St. Paul.  Thank you to all my loyal followers, occasional  visitors and lurkers who check my blog.  It's been a great ride, supported by a warm and friendly group of photographers. It's been a distinct pleasure meeting some of you face-to-face, and I hope to meet more of you.  What a terrific group you are!!

  5. That is an appealing organic interpretation for a floral horse and Art in Bloom sounds like an event I'd like to see.

  6. This is similar tot he eshibit each year at the Phoenix Art Museum, which Sharon has shown on her site this year and last.

    I liked your post yesterday about the free library. I have a little experience with a free library. Some people who stay in our condos in Costa Rica leave books for future guests. Most of them are what you would call "beach reading."

  13. Kate, I love that you love art! Congrats on your 1,500th post... that's a lot of posting! I like what the florist did here... much more original than a bouquet... it is a work of art on it own.
