Bloomin' Holidays 

Thank you to all who kicked off the holiday season at the sixth annual Bloomin' Holidays floral extravaganza at the Museum of Wisconsin Art, which featured:

Florals in the Galleries
The work of 25 Wisconsin floral designers filled the galleries for a visual and aromatic experience.

Expert Talks and Demos

There were three delightful days of floral tips and trends. View event schedule.

Holiday Shopping
Members shopped for friends and family at an indoor marketplace featuring 20 local artists and one-of-a-kind items in the MOWA Shop.

The studio transformed into a festive cafe for lunch overlooking the river with scrumptious treats and seasonal drinks.

Bloomin' Holidays is free with Membership | Walk-ins Welcome
