Springfield Art Museum
The Springfield Art Museum invites you to Art In Bloom, our signature event celebrating fine art, flowers, and fashion. This three day festival invites floral and fashion designers from throughout the region to imaginatively interpret works of art on view in the Museum’s galleries and presents them alongside those works for your enjoyment.
Art In Bloom includes juried prize categories for featured designers, People’s Choice Awards, floral arranging workshops, and family art-making activities. To date, Art In Bloom has welcomed over 7,000 patrons, raised over $88,000 for art acquisition, and awarded $11,500 in prize money. Join us for this one-of-a-kind event inspired by spring!
