The Patron Preview Party for “Art In Bloom” was the first event in a five-day series of events that showcases the fabulous floral designs of more than 100 exhibitors. Carol Bienvenu and Mathilde Currence served as co-chairs.

More than 30 local restaurants catered the preview event. The auction included three boards, each with an incredible array of valuable artwork. Prizes available for bidding included paintings, photography, blown glasses, pottery, prints, tapestries, jewelry, portraits and frames.

The following days of “Art In Bloom” included lectures, a luncheon, a fashion show and a cocktail reception, as well as exhibits throughout the New Orleans Museum of Art.

Proceeds benefit educational projects and exhibitions at NOMA and community projects of the Garden Study Club of New Orleans. Recipients of Garden Study Club grants include the New Orleans Botanical Garden, Longue Vue House and Gardens, the historic parterre garden at the Beauregard-Keyes House, the Lafayette Square Conservancy, and the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden.
