Spring blossoms at The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston’s 3-day annual “Art in Bloom” festival.  Now in its 34th year, Art in Bloom will take place Saturday, April 24- Monday April 26. This wonderful spring event highlights the creativity of 50 New England garden clubs and some very talented floral designers,whose work with fresh flowers will be on view paired next to the masterpieces that inspired them. Throughout the galleries, 50 works of art will be showcased for the event including Egyptian sculptures, 20th century photographs, and the works of Monet and Millet,  among others.

Over the course of the three- day event, enjoy lectures and flower-arranging demonstrations, participate in free guided tours that highlight the floral displays and artwork, and browse the Garden Gallery to purchase garden-related fine arts and crafts.  Special programming includes Family Day on Saturday, April 24 from 11 AM-3PM with art-making activities and tours just for kids. Monday, April 26, 5PM-9PM, the MFA will host a free community open house that will also feature several live musical performances throughout the museum.  Surely, a blooming good way to start the work week!
