Art in Bloom: Festival of Fine Arts & Flowers

Art in Bloom: Festival of Fine Arts & Flowers – Florida might not have much of a winter, but spring is stunning in the Sunshine State. This March, the Council of 101 will welcome the season once again with its second-annual springtime fundraiser — Art in Bloom: A Festival of Fine Arts & Flowers.

Art in Bloom: Festival of Fine Arts & Flowers

What:

The Council of 101 will put the “petal” to the metal to bring visitors a museum-wide kaleidoscope of breathtaking floral arrangements inspired by works from the Orlando Museum of Art’s permanent collection and current exhibitions. There will also be curated antiques, lifestyle events and design workshops that are sure to inspire.

“Springtime is beautiful in Central Florida,” said Nancy Sedacca, president of the Council of 101. “We’re very excited to host this festival for the second year to bring the community together and help support the arts.”

This year’s special guests are Margot Shaw, the founder and editor-in-chief of Flower Magazine and author of Living Floral: Entertaining and Decorating with Flowers, and Carleton Varney, one of America’s best-known interior designers and president and owner of Dorothy Draper & Co., Inc. Shaw and Varney will give lectures and sign books during the festival.

Other events on the schedule include the opening night party, daily appraisals, a mystery home tour, and floral workshops.
