Art in Bloom #2



Despite the crowded galleries and the poor lighting conditions for getting decent photos, I went to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts to photograph the event.  Florists are assigned to a piece of art and then interpret it with a floral arrangement.  The event lasts only three days because of the lifespan of the flowers so I had to brave the crowds.  I did so with a light heart because I found a terrific parking space and the temperature was 63 degrees.  Alleluia; after this terrible spring, the day was a delight.

The painting is "Tornado over St. Paul" and the arrangement amused me!!

  10. Isn't that an interesting concept? You would like the book HEART TO HEART which features poems that are influenced by art.
