March 21-24, 2024

The Westmoreland Museum of American Art is thrilled to announce the return of Art in Bloom after a long hiatus. This exciting program, taking place from March 21-24, 2024, invites art and nature lovers to experience the magic of artistic floral interpretation. With an admission fee of $10 for the public (free for members), Art in Bloom offers a unique opportunity to engage with art in a different way.

During these four days, attendees can enjoy floral compositions created by talented florists and floral designers from our region and inspired by works in the Museum’s collection. These will provide wonderful photo opportunities for visitors, allowing guests to capture the colorful combination of art and nature. Excitement further builds with awards like People’s Choice and Director’s Choice, which celebrate the most outstanding floral displays.

During Art in Bloom, the Museum will also offer a series of engaging programs, ensuring a fun and multifaceted experience for visitors of all ages. For more information and to register for these programs, please click here.
