Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 26-29, various hours, Cincinnati Art Museum
Art in Bloom, a biennial fall celebration of fine art and floral creations, will include four days of special events, family-friendly activities, docent-led tours and demonstrations by Cincinnati Art Museum curators and floral arrangers.
Approximately 70 arrangements from garden clubs, professional designers, groups and individuals will be displayed alongside works from the museum’s permanent collection, including paintings, ceramics and sculptures.
“Art in Bloom masterfully unites timeless pieces from our permanent collection with artistically presented floral arrangements,” said Cynthia Amnéus, the museum’s chief curator and curator of fashion arts and textiles. “The museum is transformed during Art in Bloom as the arrangements invite visitors and staff to see the collection with fresh eyes.”
The event’s featured work is the whimsical “Vaudeville” (circa 1982) by Lenore Davis, a fabric artist working in the latter half of the 20th century in Newport, Kentucky. Much of her work centers on the idea of the body in motion and intermingled human forms.
Art in Bloom is presented by Truepoint and sponsored by Gorilla Glue and the Oliver Family Foundation. It is free to attend from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and during Art After Dark on Oct. 27 from 5 to 9 p.m. Docent-led tours are free, but reservations are required.
Special events – including Evening in Bloom, High Tea and Lecture with Dennis Buttlewerth and Debbie Oliver, and Jazz in Bloom – require tickets. Pricing varies.
