Well the Missus and I trundled out to the Worcester Art Museum yesterday to catch Flora in Winter: Epic Bloom and say, it was swell – and smelled great too!
One of the region’s most anticipated events of the year, Flora in Winter displays floral arrangements inspired by art from WAM’s encyclopedic collection. For the 18th year, visitors explore the galleries, encountering beautiful and evocative floral designs by some of the area’s most talented floral artists. This year’s theme, Epic Bloom, is influenced by the current exhibition, “Photo Revolution: Andy Warhol to Cindy Sherman.”
Representative samples from previous years:
We like this kind of exhibit because a) it takes us to parts of the museum we might not otherwise go, and b) it makes us look more closely at the artworks than we otherwise might.
So if you can’t wait for a shot of flower power until Art in Bloom at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in April, head out to WAM this weekend. It’s well worth the trundle.
P.S. The Missus advises that you pack a lunch – WAM’s Museum Café is lovely, but the lines will be awfully long.
