Phoenix Art Museum’s sixth annual Arts & Flowers® celebration of spring will once again fill the galleries with the scent and color of flowers March 4-7, 2010.  Over sixty floral designers and garden club members will interpret their chosen artwork from the Museum’s collection in spectacular floral arrangements—“flowers interpreting art”. This event, organized by the Phoenix Art Museum League, raises funds for the Museum through its Opening Luncheon and events throughout the weekend.  Arts & Flowers also includes a beautiful floral-themed Boutique. The Opening Luncheon features Tucson author, Scott Calhoun. He will speak on “Envisioning Your Garden Through Photography”. Scott Calhoun has written five critically acclaimed books of gardens, writes and lectures across the United States. On Saturday, March 6, Arts & Flowers continues with an Encanto-Palmcroft Garden Tour. Five fabulous gardens from this historic city neighborhood will open to the public. The Arts & Flowers weekend features other fund-raising events including a floral design workshop with designer Karin Crawford, owner of Gods Garden Treasures flower shop, First Friday at the Museum, children’s art programs and a photography workshop by floral designer and photographer, Heather Dent, of La Vie En Rose. The floral designs will be judged by a team of professional floral judges, Museum Curators and members of the League. Arts & Flowers ends Sunday with an “It’s A Wrap” awards ceremony, at which the winners of the design competition and People’s Choice voting are recognized. All events are open to the public by ticket. For ticket information, please see www.phxartmuseumleague.org. The Phoenix Art Museum League has been raising funds for Phoenix Art Museum since 1951.
