Fine Arts & Flowers at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art

Get there this weekend.

     You will not regret one moment spent viewing the floral interpretations of 75 works of art in the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts‘s permanent collection.  This spectacular event created by members of the Garden Club of Virginia in conjunction with the Museum provides an amazing opportunity to view the works and floral design in such a unique way.  Some of my favorite designs, which I found on the VMFA’s Facebook page, include

Ritual crown with floral design by Elizabeth Burgess,

Renoir’s “The Artist’s Son” with floral design by Liz Savage Goffigon, Traci Jones and Susan Henderson,

“Chi-wara Headress” with floral design by Jean Fender and Vivian Gulden,

Arman’s “Torso” with floral design by Caroline Parrish,

Carpeaux’s “Neopolitan Fisher Boy” with floral design by Darlene Halvorsen, Ann Brown and Barrett Tharrington,

Hassam’s “Isle of Shoals” with floral design by Doris Morris and Lesley Dobson, and

Pollack’s “Number 15” with floral design by Kathy Klein.

     In anticipation of the dreary weather forecast this weekend, a visit to Fine Arts & Flowers provides the perfect family opportunity to enjoy nature indoors.  Its almost scavenger-like format will have you visiting galleries and artwork that you may not have ever seen or at least not in a long time.  I am already anticipating the next Fine Arts & Flowers in two years.

    I had the opportunity to enjoy Fine Arts & Flowers yesterday as well. The museum was as lively and festive as I’ve ever seen it. The galleries and their works came to life with the floral interpretations, and I wanted to linger in each gallery like never before. A must see!
