Queen of Arts

Celebrating 30 years of “Art in Bloom”

I can hardly believe that one of the most exciting events we have in this city is 30 years old! I got to chair “Art in Bloom” with Louisette Brown and Brenda Pumphrey in 1989, and it’s come a long way! This year’s Chairs, Courtney LeClercq and Sara Fein, are promising four days that will excite everyone who walks through the doors of the New Orleans Museum of Art March 14-18.

Throughout the museum “Art in Bloom” showcases over 100 exhibitors from flower arrangers and garden clubs who will interpret the museum’s collection in flowers. There are movers and shakers, exhibits for school children, tablescape designers and more. Thanks to IberiaBank for presenting this amazing “Art in Bloom.”

It all starts at the Patron Party on March 14 at 6 p.m. with music, cocktails and delectable food from our most famous restaurants – and you get to see everything first! On March 15, there will be lectures by restauranteur and florist, Charles Masson, fashion designer Lela Rose and lunch and a fashion show by Saks Fifth Avenue. There is even an exhibit by Alexander McQueen!
