The City of Akron will come to life in the form of flowers when The Akron Garden Club returns to Akron Art Museum June 14-17 to produce Art Blooms, a Garden Club of America flower show. Inspired by the revitalization of Akron, the show will exhibit outstanding horticulture, conservation, photography and floral interpretations of fine art.
Highlights will include 20 highly artistic floral designs inspired by works on exhibition at the museum, arrayed throughout the galleries. There also will be 12 entries of jewelry and other embellished items made entirely from dried botanical material. In addition, the show will feature 26 classes of seasonal cut horticultural specimens from local gardens, houseplants, terrariums and container gardens and 30 landscape and horticultural photographs. A conservation exhibition about Akron Waterways Renewed! will educate about the city’s multi-year, billion-dollar water quality improvement project.
