The museum galleries will overflow with stunning floral arrangements as this much-anticipated event returns for a second year. All four museums will burst with color when over 50 museum objects are creatively interpreted by florists, designers, and garden club members. Join us as we celebrate the coming of spring throughout the art, history and science museums!

Works of inspiration include French paintings, American contemporary art, Chinese cloisonné, Islamic rugs, the rainforest and Indian Motocycles.
