Art in Bloom is the Friend’s most important fundraiser of the year. For four days, the floral arrangements of over 150 designers are displayed next to the artworks that inspired them.

Art in Bloom raises funds to support Mia, including bus transportation for school children, special exhibitions, art acquisition, education, and programs throughout the community.

This event is made possible by Friend’s members, volunteers, and the generous support of sponsors.

Art in Bloom 2022 will be held in person April 28-May 1 2022. For more information visit www.artsmia.org/ArtInBloom
