The art of floral arrangement is once again celebrated at Art in Bloom, a four-day festival featuring over 165 pieces. Florists have taken works from Mia’s collection as inspiration, reinterpreting paintings, sculptures, textiles, vases, and more through flora. There will be a variety of special happenings through Sunday, including guided tours, lectures, and workshops. Things kick off Wednesday with a preview benefit party at 5:30 p.m. (tickets start at $200). Thursday’s Flowers After Hours is free and fun, with a runway show featuring models in flower garments, open galleries, and a cash bar from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday is family-friendly, with hands-on art activities, storytelling, and more from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Many events are free; some are ticketed.
