Step into a celebration of fashion, beauty, design, and flowers. A very special treat in 2015, presented in the spirit of the Museum’s annual Art in Bloom, this event struts in for four days, offering exciting new surprises. Beauty in Bloom will transform the Museum, showcasing the talents of regional floral artists and designers in a not-to-be-missed display—and presenting beauty events on fashion, makeup, hair, and more, inspired by the Inspiring Beauty exhibition.
