Art in Bloom will be back!
Floral Design Exhibition: May 12 – 16, 2021
Luncheon: Thursday, May 13, 2021
Gala: Saturday, May 15, 2021
It is with a heavy heart that MAM decided to cancel this year’s Art in Bloom exhibition and events. The enthusiasm around this year’s events featuring Francoise Weeks, nearly 50 designers from our community, and our honorees Betty Jagoda Murphy and Lora Urbanelli, has been tremendous. We are sincerely grateful to everyone involved in planning and supporting our efforts up until this point—Event Chairs and Committee, floral designers, and our event sponsors—and we are eager to pivot our efforts to host this beloved celebration next spring. Stay tuned for rescheduled workshop dates with Francoise Weeks!
We extend our immense gratitude for your support and look forward to celebrating with our community.
