Share on Nextdoor

The Museum of Fine Arts is transformed into a temporary garden during its 11th annual spring exhibition, Art in Bloom. Professional and hobbyist floral designers have taken inspiration from works on display or from architectural spaces at MFA to create more than 50 breathtaking floral installations that are spread throughout the entire museum. Art in Bloom makes its debut on Saturday and is displayed through Wednesday, with various related events held in between. Highlights include a special after-hours museum fundraiser and premiere party, "Floral Reflections: Architecture and Art," which features a lavish dinner buffet, wine and cocktails, live music and dancing, and a silent art auction; and the Stuart Society-hosted "Tea in the Garden." In honor of the fleeting flower exhibition, the museum opens its doors on Monday, when it's usually closed. Art in Bloom, April 12-16, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon.-Wed. and Sat., 1-5 p.m. Sun. (Premiere Party, 6:30 p.m. Sat., April 12, $85 per person, and Tea in the Garden, 3-4 p.m. Tues., April 15, $8 per person), 255 Beach Drive N.E., St. Petersburg, $12 adults/$10 seniors/$6 ages seven and older (members and children 6 and under enter for free), 727-896-2667,
