Art in Bloom

Claude Monet

Since spring is (finally!) making an appearance in the Midwest, I wanted to share some of my photographs from Milwaukee Art Museum 2014 Art in Bloom exhibit. (The colors used in the artwork by Claude Monet and in the arrangement are my favorite.)

Art in Bloom is a celebration pairing eye-catching floral arrangements with the art in the Museum’s renowned Collection. Inspiration comes from paintings, sculptures, and other installations.

You can learn more about the museum here:

Robert Motherwell

This arrangement was inspired by “Two Figures with Stripes” by Robert Motherwell. (The more I look at this picture, the more it seems to suggest ideas for a short story. This may actually become my desktop background for awhile!)

Gerhard Richter

“Breath” by Gerhard Richter inspired this arrangement.

Elizabeth Murray

Finally–this beautiful pink arrangement was inspired by Elizabeth Murray’s “Night Reach.”

I hope you enjoy the flowers and the artwork!
