Wednesday, February 13 through Sunday, February 17

In February 2018, the PMA introduced Art in Bloom as a way to bring the magic of springtime to the museum in the midst of winter and provide something special for our year-round members in the Maine community, in addition to visitors from all over.

The response was overwhelming. Nearly 5,000 visitors came through the museum’s doors to enjoy the pairing of floral arrangements and fine art, and to enjoy each other’s company during the cold of mid-winter. In 2019, we’re responding to this demand by increasing our open hours and including even more dazzling floral interpretations created by local garden clubs and professional floral designers.

The Art in Bloom event schedule is robust once more with extended hours, so be sure to plan your tour or event now. The workshops will fill up quickly, so reserve your spot early!

Art in Bloom is free for members or with admission.
