Art in Bloom 2012 at the Minneapolis Institute of Art...Part 1

Every year  Minneapolis Institute of Arts   organizes annual Art in Bloom exhibition.  This four-day event challenges floral designers to create their vision of the Museum artworks.

This is how it works: Florists choose what paintings or the sculpture they like and then recreate their vision of the artwork with live flower arrangements.  I captured with my camera the result of this creative process.  It is interesting to see the actual artwork and florist's creation side by side.  I definitely could see the inspiration of artwork reflected in flower arrangements.  I found many versions of the Museum's artwork recreated in flowers that I liked and I have to say - the museum smelled beautiful!   

This year it was 29th year of Art in Bloom.  I took a lot of pictures, and since I would like to show as much as possible to you, I divided all images into parts and will be posting them under "Art in Bloom" title.  Today I have prepared Part 1 for you.  As you can see I shot some arrangement from different angles so you can see them better and appreciate the beauty of all colors and textures presented in bouquets.  Share with me your favorites!
