The Springfield Art Museum invites you to Art In Bloom, our signature event celebrating fine art and fantastic floral displays.

Art In Bloom includes prize categories for featured florists including People’s Choice Award, an incredible preview party with a nature-inspired runway show, floral arranging workshops, and more! Proceeds from Art In Bloom events benefit the Museum’s art acquisition and exhibition efforts. To date, Art In Bloom has welcomed over 3,500 patrons, raised over $45,000, and awarded $4,000 in prize money. Join us for this one-of-a-kind event inspired by spring!
