Spring wouldn’t be spring in Minnesota without the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s annual dose of gorgeous floral arrangements inspired by the collection. Art in Bloom is a tradition that brings people back year after year because it’s just so rejuvenating (and after the winter we’ve had this year, it’s downright necessary). The celebration launches with a ticketed preview party on Wednesday. Thursday through Sunday, guests can see the arrangements during Mia’s open hours, and attend a variety of classes, workshops, and tours. Happenings include the free Flowers After Hours event on Thursday evening, a fashion show/luncheon, and a party that features fragrance samples by Thymes and a performance by the Minnesota Opera. If you have kiddos, you’ll want to come on Saturday morning for storytelling, art activities, face painting, and snacks. Find the complete schedule at new.artsmia.org/art-in-bloom-2018.
