In Full Bloom

Virginia Museum of Fine Arts pairs floral arrangements with works of art.

In partnership with the Garden Club of Virginia, floral designers from around the state create floral interpretations of art on display in VMFA’s permanent collections for the Richmond museum’s annual Fine Arts & Flowers exhibition. The event kicks off with the Kaleidoscope of Flowers gala Oct. 24, followed by three days of lectures and floral design workshops concluding with the Flowers in Fashion luncheon and fashion show highlighting designs from VCU students. Proceeds from the event benefit VMFA’s Artmobile initiative. VMFA.museum
