The 26th Annual Art in Bloom takes place April 29th- May 3rd 2009 at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Tonight is an exclusive expensive opening, but Thursday thru Sunday is free to the public. Every year more and more floral arrangers match their wits, skills, and instinct to create arrangements that link and honor works of art in the museum. for the past three years I have worked with Sue Bagge who has been an outstanding and recognized floral arranger at the AIB for each of the 26 years. This year I made a pitcher that stands 18 inches tall and nestles upon a base-vase which is 5 inches tall. Check it out, it smells great.
