The Women’s Committee of the Walters Art Museum
will host The Garden of Eden: The 20th Anniversary of Art Blooms, Thursday, March 5–Sunday, March 8, 2009. During this annual event, more than 30 area garden clubs will present their floral arrangements, which interpret artworks in the Medieval and Renaissance galleries of the Walters.
This springtime event will complement the Walters’ special exhibition, The Saint John’s Bible: A Modern Vision through Medieval Methods, on view February 15–May 24, 2009. The Women’s Committee is the lead sponsor of this exhibition. In keeping with the Eden theme, this year’s Art Blooms will feature tabletop garden vignettes created by local designers and displayed in the Sculpture Court throughout the weekend. Other Art Blooms programs include a preview party, gallery tours, floral design demonstrations and a hands-on lecture and workshop with premier floral designer Ron Morgan and top garden designer Tovah Martin.
