Art in Bloom will involve more than
100 participants, each responding to an
allocated work from the State Art Collection.
Their arrangements – using flowers, plants
and other mediums – will be on display
over three days in September. Among those
taking part are landscape gardener Josh
Byrne, food artist Bridget Waters and Insite
stylist Natasja Nortier.
In 2008, the event attracted some 18,000
visitors. Now in its 10th year, the turnout is
set to grow even bigger. Money raised from
admissions will go towards purchasing
new works for the State Art Collection.
Coinciding with the exhibition will
be the more recently established City in
Bloom. This will see floral artworks in an
urban environment, adorning various
landmarks throughout the city centre.
