Despite some snow setbacks, spring is kind of here. This Thursday, Mia will celebrate this fact with an evening party filled with flower-themed activities and a cash bar. Join artist Emma Freeman in making cool art prints out of natural material, and take a mini tour with stops at the museum’s most floral-themed works. There will also be some sneak peeks of Art in Bloom, a multi-day festival in which florists create pieces inspired by iconic art in the galleries. Pose in the photobooth for a momento to take home, and make your own May Day basket. Folks who sign up to be a Mia member can reserve a spot to get into “Power and Beauty in China’s Last Dynasty” for free, which will save them $20. It’s also free to become a member, but you’ll want to call ahead to reserve a space, since viewing times fill up quickly.
