Art in Bloom

April 7–10, 2022

Welcome the return of Art in Bloom at the Museum this April, and see spring come alive!

This popular community event transforms the entire Museum for four days of art and flowers. Bring friends and family and explore the collection galleries to see what paintings, sculptures, and other works top regional designers have interpreted. Discover their breathtaking, art-inspired arrangements, and treat yourself to the colors and aromas of spring.

Past floral displays have interpreted, for example, Nick Cave’s Soundsuit and Jules Bastien-Lepage’s painting Le Père Jacques (The Wood Gatherer). The arrangement pictured above, from the 2019 event, was inspired by Henry Vianden’s Landscape with Mountains and River.

Kids and families will have the opportunity to make their own floral-like creations in the Kohl’s Art Studio. The event is one that truly all ages will enjoy!

Check back here in late January for ticket information and event updates.

Flowers in Art at the Milwaukee Art Museum

“Throughout history, artists have been drawn to flowers for their natural beauty and their symbolism. Flowers have been used as the primary subject of a painting, as details within a larger image, and as motifs on decorative art objects. Many artworks in the Museum’s collection feature flowers. Explore a few of them below, and click through to read the accompanying blog posts.” —Catherine Sawinski, assistant curator of European art
