Art in Bloom at the High Museum of Art

This past weekend, I attended Art in Bloom, a three-day celebration featuring exotic and imaginative floral interpretations of select work from the High Museum of Art's permanent collection. The participating florists' floral interpretations were presented alongside the art. 

Art in Bloom provided visitors an exciting and botanical way to experience the permanent collection.


Below are highlights of the exhibit:
