BEST SIGN OF SPRING - 2010
Art in Bloom at Minneapolis Institute of Arts
For 27 years the Minneapolis Institute of Arts has brought springtime indoors with Art in Bloom, a museum-wide celebration of natural beauty and human ingenuity. The free four-day festival features 100 floral artists given a unique opportunity to design colorful and fragrant displays in response to the Institute's extensive collection. This year's festival takes place April 29 through May 2 and includes lectures, luncheons, and family events. Sure, the flowers will be blooming outdoors (so don't stay inside for too long!), but if you just can't wait to experience the full splendor of spring, then enjoy a leisurely stroll through the museum's halls. After all, how often do you get to stop and smell the roses in front of a masterpiece?
