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.

What is the dress code? Any etiquette?
If we come to the opening of the Flora in Winter, will we be able to see Monet as well? What are the fees involved? We are planning for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children age 13 and 7). Thank you!|
||Greetings! Thank you for reaching out with this question! The Monet exhibit is opening at the same time of the Opening Party for Flora in Winter. We are expecting a high number of guests, especially during the Opening Party, so there may be a waiting line to get into the Monet gallery that the exhibit is hung. Your admission into the Museum during the entire time Monet is on exhibit will allow you to view all galleries, including Monet. During Flora in Winter, there is slightly different pricing and the Opening Party is also priced seperately. There is not particular dress code for Worcester Art Museum although itis common for guests to be slightly "dressier" during eventing events. I hope I was able to clarify things a little! Feel free to call me at 508 793 4450 if you have any additonal questions or concerns. Have a great day!|
