Art in Bloom Luncheon
Friday, February 21, 2014
Come and explore the stunning floral arrangements on view throughout the Vero Beach Museum of Art’s permanent collection galleries. The original creations are the work of the community’s top floral designers, inspired by the Museum’s permanent collection.
Art in Bloom began five years ago at the Vero Beach Museum of Art as part of the Museum's free Community Celebration. Members of the John's Island Garden Club create spectacular floral installations inspired by works in the Museum's permanent collection, all on display for the entire celebration weekend. For the past five years, more than 2,200 people have visited each year during this spectacular exhibition.
The Art in Bloom Luncheon has become the hottest ticket in town, and includes a floral demonstration featuring world-renowned floral artist Hitomi Gilliam, followed by an elegant lunch, a “Viewers’ Choice Award” and fashion show. This year's event is co-chaired by Pinky Regan, Kathy Saxe and Beth Werwaiss.
