The Ringling celebrated the natural beauty of the grounds and gardens and the talents of area floral artists during the fourth Ringling in Bloom.
Flower enthusiasts from area garden clubs chose a work on display at the Museum that inspired them and created a floral arrangement to pair with their chosen artwork. Their creations were displayed in the galleries next to the object.
The public had the chance to vote on their favorites in three categories: Most Beautiful, Most Creative and Best Interpretation. The winners are pictured below.
Thanks to all who participated and visited.
Nancy Bailey created this arrangement based on "The Sisters" by George Watson. It was on display in Gallery 18.
Becca McFadden created this arrangement using dozens of roses. She was inspired by the print "Chromatic Twist" by Herber Bayer. Both works were displayed in the Searing Wing.
Judy Herman and Jean Ruff created this piece, which was inspired by "Girl Playing with a Bird on a String" by Jean Raoux. The works were on display in Gallery 15.
