2009 Art in Bloom



Celebrate the arrival of spring with the highly-anticipated return of the biennial benefit, Art in Bloom. Presented by the Utah Museum of Fine Arts' Benefit Council, Art in Bloom is a three-day festival of fine art and floral design.


This year more than thirty of Utah's top floral designers will participate. Each designer will select a work of art on view in the Museum's galleries and, using flowers. greenery, custom-made containers and their own artistic vision, create a flowering masterpiece.


Proceeds from Art in Bloom are critical to ensuring the continuation of outreach programs designed to enhance visual arts education in Utah, such as Art-in-a-Box and pARTners. In addition, funds raised during Art in Bloom support many of the UMFA's ongoing family programs, which include Third Saturday and Family Backpacks.
