Celebrate art and creativity, springtime and flowers

We are thrilled to announce that Art in Bloom has returned for 2021! We’ll be saluting the spring virtually this year, and we look forward to delivering a weekend of delight and discovery as we showcase fine art and floral design for the 45th year. Presented by the MFA Associates, in collaboration with the MFA staff, Art in Bloom philanthropically supports the mission of the MFA and the Associates.
