A beloved community tradition for more than 40 years, Art Alive returns early this spring! As the Museum’s signature annual fundraiser, Art Alive raises essential support for exhibitions, education, and public programs throughout the year.

Last year, more than 10,000 visitors toured the Museum’s galleries and grounds, enjoying more than 70 floral interpretations of great works of art. This isn’t possible without the incredible work of our volunteer floral designers, whose inspired fresh floral and botanical interpretations of art will be on display at the Museum from March 30 through April 2, 2023.

We invite the region’s top-tier floral designers to create thought-provoking and elegantly crafted arrangements, all inspired by works of art on view at the Museum.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Art Alive 2023 Floral Exhibition.
