Friends New Acquisition Fund


Mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 25 for the Art in Bloom Preview Party to kick off our fun four days of Art in Bloom 2018!
Have you ever been to the unveiling, to great fanfare, of a major work of art? You can share in this once in a lifetime opportunity at the 2018 Art in Bloom Preview Party on the evening of Wednesday, April 25. The Preview Party precedes four fun-filled days of the finest art, flowers, fashion, tours, speakers, and workshops at this annual spring extravaganza.
During this gala event we will reveal the Art in Bloom signature art piece — a recently acquired still life painting by renowned French artist, Eugene Delacroix.  This French masterpiece had been in a private collection and thus has never been in the public eye. It was purchased and will be presented to the museum by the Friends of the Institute in honor of and to commemorate the 100 year anniversary coming up in 2022.
Not only will you be among the first to view this beautiful Delacroix but you will enjoy a delicious French-inspired dinner and be seated among the art on the second floor. Attending the Preview Party also allows you to enjoy the over 160 pedestal and commercial floral interpretations of Mia’s art at their freshest.
Corporate or group tables of 10 seats will be available with a premier location. Please contact the Friends Office at 612.870.3045 for more information. Tickets will be available during the first week of March.
