View Art in Bloom at the MFA

The weekend-long nod to nature fills the MFA with florals, masterclasses on arranging, and flower-centric lectures.

Past featured arrangements at Art in Bloom at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, marks the return of spring with its 47th annual Art in Bloom celebration. For more than four decades, the beloved event has paired art from the MFA’s collection—from ancient to contemporary—with floral interpretations created by New England-area garden clubs and professional designers. In addition to 45 original arrangements, highlights of this year’s weekend-long event include a series of special events with master floral designer and founder of JNG Event Consulting Jimmy Guzman. He will lead two master classes as well as a lecture and demonstration called “Cherishing Moments of Being with Flowers.”


The weekend kicks off with a special preview of freshly installed arrangements available for viewing on Apr. 27. Private group tours also begin that afternoon, with advance registration. Throughout the weekend, visitors can enjoy free guided tours of arrangements throughout the galleries (included with Museum admission) and stop by the Garden Cart, known for its fresh flower-filled teacups, for unique gifts, treasures, and take-home flower arrangements.

Art in Bloom and its free guided tours are included with MFA general admission. Tickets are required for private group tours (on sale March 7) and speaker programs (on sale April 4).
