Art in Bloom spotlights fine art masterpieces with floral interpretations.
Art in Bloom returns to the Cincinnati Art Museum this fall with floral arrangements inspired by the museum’s permanent collection. Creating a dialogue between fine art and floral beauty, over 80 arrangements from local garden clubs, professional designers, groups and individuals will be placed alongside paintings, ceramics, and sculptures. In addition, each floral designer will accept the challenge to create arrangements with live flowers.
Visitors can experience the floral displays for free during regular museum hours. Some special events require reservations. The four-day celebration allows for free access to the floral creations from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. from Oct. 17–20. Special events include artists painting in the Great Hall, tours and demonstrations by artists, curators, and floral arrangers. Also enjoy Families in Bloom, a family celebration on October 19, which features scavenger hunts and art-making activities.

About Art in Bloom Cincinnati Event
Since 2001, the masterpieces in the museum’s permanent collection has allowed visitors to view and interpret them in a new way. Art in Bloom’s 2019 theme is “Light” featuring In the Park by Frank Harmon Myers. The colorful oil painting presents an early twentieth-century view of the museum from Eden Park in an impressionistic style. “Art in Bloom commonly brightens the spirits as visitors see the sparkling light on beautiful flowers. Local people thoughtfully and creatively made the floral arrangements to interpret masterful artworks,” says Marilyn Duke, Art in Bloom co-chair.
