Art in Bloom kicks off at the GRAM

Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — It’s all about art this weekend in Grand Rapids. 

Art in Bloom is officially back at the Grand Rapids Art Museum beginning Friday.

The one-weekend-only exhibit celebrates the beauty of both art and floral design. Fifteen artists interpreted paintings or other artworks through floral sculptures.

“Our mission is to connect people through art, creativity and design and we really love to celebrate art and its many forms. So from music to floral design and the art that hangs on our walls, we’d like to showcase the local talent here in West Michigan,” said Elizabeth Payne, communications manager with the GRAM.

GRAM officials say visitors are encouraged to tour the galleries and enjoy the floral sculptures. Museum members will be able to visit for free and others will have to pay $15.

  • Friday, March: 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 20: Member hours are 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and public hours are 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Sunday, March 21: Member hours are 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and public hours are 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

“Visitors can expect the same experience that they love from Art in Bloom with some visitor guidelines like safety, masks, social distancing and time tickets; definitely encourage everyone to reserve time tickets online as many tickets are selling out,” Payne said.
