The Dallas Museum of Art League unveiled details for Art in Bloom 2017: Seasons of Love, at a recent cocktail reception on Wednesday, October 19 from 6 – 8 p.m.
Hosted by St. John in Highland Park Village, chairman Sarah Jo Hardin and honorary chairman Jill Goldberg were joined by 35 host committee members to celebrate the upcoming annual floral symposium and luncheon, set for Monday, March 27, 2017. Proceeds from the event support the DMA’s exhibition and education programs and the DMA League’s Floral Endowment Fund.
Attendees mingled over champagne and canapés as they shopped St. John’s fall collection. Mrs. Hardin gathered the crowd mid-way through the evening to share exciting details about Art in Bloom 2017, which will feature world-renowned Dutch-born floral designer and educator René van Rems as the symposium speaker. The venue for the announcement party was no coincidence as she also unveiled that St. John will be the 2017 Luxury Fashion sponsor.
Additionally, the 2017 event will include an inaugural Live Blooming Art Exhibit in the Dallas Museum of Art’s Level 2 European galleries featuring a unique display of floral arrangements, created by local floral designers and inspired by works of art from the Museum’s permanent collection. Art in Bloom patrons will be the firstto preview the show, with the exhibition remaining on view for DMA visitors through March 29.
Ms. Hardin extended her gratitude for the host of the evening, St. John, as well as all sponsors to date, host committee members in attendance and volunteers. Honorary chairman Jill Goldberg followed to add her thanks, especially to Ms. Hardin for her time and commitment as event chairman.
As the evening came to an end, the winner of a $250 St. John gift card was announced…. Emily Maduro!
