Join us as we kick off Art In Bloom 2019! Before the crowds descend, come celebrate spring, Art in Bloom style. Be among the first to admire the breathtaking commercial installations along with over 160 pedestal floral interpretations of Mia’s world-class art.

The party begins at 6PM in Mia’s elegant second-floor corridor. Live harp music, butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, food stations with Mediterranean-inspired appetizers, and a full bar featuring a signature Art in Bloom cocktail will be on hand.

Activities will include docent-led tours of the pedestal floral arrangements, a scavenger hunt, picture-perfect photo opportunities, and an amazing selection of Great Gatherings (special outings and experiences) to sign up for. The ever popular Art in Bloom Shop will be open all evening for your shopping enjoyment.

Watch as local artist Joshua Cunningham creates a vignette painting of the Preview Party.  If you purchase a Fund-A-Need bus at the event, your name may be drawn to be the lucky recipient of Mr. Cunningham’s painting as a memento of this memorable evening!

Preview Party tickets start at $200 and will be available at the end of February online at ticket.artsmia.org or by calling 888.642.2787.

We look forward to celebrating with you on April 10!
