Art in Bloom - Opening Night Featuring the Flower Cart

Thursday, Jun 24, 2021 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm


The Marion Art Center is pleased to announce the return of Art in Bloom. The MAC will host several events over the three day period. Anyone is invited to create an arrangement for Art in Bloom, and designers may work in pairs or teams. Designers may use any available MAC pedestals for displaying arrangements but are invited to bring their own unique stand of appropriate size and height. Selection of artwork to pair with arrangements will begin on Saturday, June 5 starting at 10:00am, giving designers almost three weeks to prepare. Eden Florist of Marion, a supporter of many MAC productions, is a great place for sourcing materials!

Attend the opening night viewing at the Marion Art Center to see creative floral arrangements inspired by the art of Willoughby Elliott, a retrospective of work on display in the MAC galleries. During the June 24 reception, guests can purchase a small bouquet or stems from the David Gregory Flower Cart, a mobile flower shop that will be on site at the MAC.

Artistic floral arrangements will remain on display from Thursday, June 24 at 12:00pm through Saturday, June 26 at 2:00pm.
