I love flowers. I love museums. So when I heard that Sarasota’s Ringling Museum of Art having a special four-day exhibit (“Ringling in Bloom”, Feb. 3—6) showcasing 24 floral arrangements inspired by the masterpieces, I was instantly intrigued. The results blew me away — the effect was amazing, as it felt like the art had truly come to life. Each floral designer had been assigned a work of art and it was up to them how they wanted to interpret it. Some chose flowers that matched the colors in the painting; others tried to replicate part of the painting through the bouquet.
Below are some photos of the exhibit… I only wish more museums did this!
