Art in Bloom DC
June 13, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - June 15, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
Experience the exquisite art and architecture of our headquarters, Anderson House, as never before, as floral sculptures inspired by the art and furnishings are displayed throughout the museum. Art in Bloom DC is a unique opportunity to view interpretations of specific artworks, furnishings and architectural details rendered in a floral medium. More than two dozen of Washington’s most creative and innovative floral designers have come together to showcase their unique style, vision and skill through the display of flowers, inspired by objects in Anderson House including 17th-century Flemish tapestries, gilded ceilings, garden sculpture, Larz Anderson’s diplomatic uniform and portraits of Isabel Anderson.
Anderson House is the exclusive venue for Art in Bloom DC 2022. Anderson House was also the venue for a virtual Art in Bloom DC event in 2021. For more information on Art in Bloom DC and to see photos of the 2021 floral installations, visit https://www.artinbloomdc.com/.
