When people say “April showers bring May flowers,” they obviously have never been to “Art in Bloom.” This year’s event will take place March 21 through 24 and benefits the New Orleans Museum of Art and The Garden Study Club’s community projects, which include the New Orleans Botanical Garden, The Beauregard-Keyes House and the Lazarus House and Lounge.

NOMA’s Director Susan Taylor; co-chairs Joey Brown and Jeanette Slakey; Carol Short, Chair of the NOMA Volunteer Committee; and Kate Werner, President of the Garden Study Club will oversee as NOMA is transformed “into a place of color and flowers during this five-day event,” which showcases more than 75 exhibitors, including floral designers, garden clubs, artists and interior designers.

There is also a patron and preview party on March 20, which will allow guests first looks at the exhibits, “culinary masterpieces” by area restaurants and caterers and a silent auction of unique works of art by “some of the region’s most gifted artists.”

Call 658-4121 for tickets and more information.
