Flora in Winter at Worcester Art Museum
The 17th annual Flora in Winter, one of Worcester's most beloved traditions, takes place January 24 through 27 at the Worcester Art Museum, 55 Salisbury Street. For four days, dozens of imaginative floral displays transform the Museum into a wonderland awash in color, light, and a profusion of delicate perfumes - the perfect antidote to winters icy grip. Floral designers interpret works from WAM's permanent collection and fill the Museum with decorative creations intended to delight and amaze. This year, Flora in Winter coincides with the January 25th opening of the special exhibition, Monet's Waterloo Bridge: Vision and Process. Related programming inspired by Monet, one of the most celebrated Impressionist artists, is scheduled throughout the event. More information about Flora in Winter can be found at worcesterart.org/flora.
Flora in Winter is sponsored by United Bank Foundation Massachusetts and funded in part by The Spear Fund for Public Programs. The public is invited to a party celebrating both Flora in Winter and the opening of the exhibition, Monet's Waterloo Bridge: Vision and Process, on Friday, January 25 from 5:30 to 8pm. Water Lilies to Waterloo: An evening of Monet and Flowers will be a perfect fusion of color, light, flowers, and art. This festive evening will include entertainment, hearty hors doeuvres, and cash bar. Valet parking will be available at the Museum's Lancaster Street entrance for $5 per car.
Flora in Winter, chaired by Worcester Garden Club members Kim Cutler, Kathy Michie, and Sarah Ribeiro, includes a variety of public programs including guided tours, lecture by Kim Cutler, demonstration by expert floral designers, drop-in art activity, and a performance by the Seele Musicale Chamber Ensemble - all free with Flora admission.
Other special ticketed programs delve more deeply into the themes and floral design techniques and require advance registration, as space is limited.
