MAM: The Flowering

End Date:

Art in Bloom, a signature celebration of the Montclair Art Museum, is a biennial festival of floral design. The 2016 rendition, MAM: The Flowering, will present 33 enchanting floral interpretations of works of art. The exhibition is a remarkable collaboration of floral arrangements created by more than 40 floral designers from the tristate area and the art that inspired them—the paintings, sculpture, and photography from the permanent collection of the Museum and the special exhibition, American Visions: 1870–1940, Works from the Bank of America Collection.


This not-to-be-missed exhibition will only be open to the public for one week, May 11–15, 2016 and is accompanied by a selection of special events. For more information about special events, visit
