The enduring support of Commercial Floral Artists (CFA)

CFA’s offer a special treat for Art in Bloom 2021!

Have you ever wondered about the commercial florists at Art In Bloom—the ones who create the large, awe-inspiring floral installations in the main spaces at Mia? They are professional, retail florists from our community who volunteer their time and talent to enhance the beautiful art at Mia and heighten the Art in Bloom experience for visitors. 

The tradition of having big floral displays at the entrances and hallways of Mia started back with the very first Art in Bloom in 1984. There were nine commercial florists that participated that year and this wonderful tradition has lived on to this day. 

We are thrilled to continue to involve our Commercial Floral Artists during this unprecedented year when we cannot have floral displays at the museum. Twelve local florists have agreed to safely display their beautiful installations at their place of business.  These floral displays will be a gift to Mia and to the community and allow us to enjoy flowers and plants in person.

We hope you will visit and enjoy each commercial florist’s creativity and generosity. While you are admiring the flowers, take a photo or a selfie and tag it #ArtInBloom and share it with your friends and family!
