Over the weekend I went to the Art in Bloom exhibit at the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, New Jersey. At this exhibit Floral designers reinterpreted various paintings through out the museum. From the catalogue:
“Talented floral designers from across the region have generously created floral designs that enliven our halls in unique and inspirational ways.”
My two favorite arrangements were alongside paintings by Will Barnet, an abstract painter from Montclair. I also loved the way a Hans Hoffman painting was represented by live plant material. Below are examples of the paintings and beautiful floral arrangements.
