Art in Bloom

General Information

Inspired by the fields of flowers depicted in the plein air paintings of Ramón Vilanova on exhibit in the Old Gallery, the Museum has organized a temporary display of art to capture the imaginations and talents of regional floral designers. ART IN BLOOM, a special event to be held June 9 – 11, in the Museum’s Crescent Galleries, pairs works from the permanent collection with live floral displays created by the area’s leading designers to interpret the individual works of art.

Artist Information

Thank you for your interest in Art in Bloom at the Evansville Museum. Celebrating your talents as floral designers and the display of your fresh floral interpretations of art in the Museum’s collection are key to the success of our June 8-11 event.

We have selected works of art in the collection to reflect a broad range of styles, subject matter, time periods and cultures and will exhibit these works in the Museum’s Crescent Galleries as part of Art in Bloom. We invite you to choose one work of art from this special exhibition to interpret in a live, fresh flower arrangement. These arrangements will be displayed from the Thursday evening preview party on June 8 through Sunday, June 11. The Museum hours for Art in Bloom are Thursday, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.; Sunday, noon – 5:00 pm.
