Art in Bloom might be one of the best signs of spring in Minneapolis. Each year, Mia invites florists to create arrangements inspired by pieces from the museum’s collection. The results feature a refreshing mix of interpretations, whether floral artists are matching the colors of an abstract work or pulling things together to call back to the shape of a sculpture. You can stop by and see these pieces during gallery hours all weekend, and there are planned happenings. Thursday’s Flowers After Hours features a runway show with models rocking looks made from natural elements, while Friday’s TGI Flowers will offer cocktails and other entertainment. Sunday will be especially family-friendly, with activities in the galleries. The festival also offers a variety of workshops, talks, and benefit parties. Find the complete schedule at artsmia.org.
