Press Release (ePRNews.com) - MONTCLAIR, N.J. - Feb 24, 2018 - This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the Montclair Art Museum’s Art in Bloom, a biennial celebration of floral design inspired by the art in MAM’s galleries. More than 35 designers and garden clubs from the tristate region will contribute to floral interpretations of artwork from the permanent collection of the Museum and the special exhibition Kay WalkingStick: An American Artist.
Art in Bloom will be open to the public for a limited run May 16–20, 2018 and is accompanied by a selection of social fundraising events, including a luncheon and lecture on May 17 and gala on May 19. These special events benefit the Montclair Art Museum’s exhibitions and education programs and advance the Museum’s mission to engage and inspire diverse audiences across the region. The Museum will honor four extraordinary, civic-minded women for this anniversary edition: Rose Cali, a community leader and philanthropist who champions the arts and education across the region; Dr. Susan Cole, President of Montclair State University and thought leader in education policy; Deborah Hirsch, arts & culture advocate who has created a legacy of extraordinary volunteer and board service; and Kay WalkingStick, featured artist. These honorees planted seeds of change in Montclair over the past 30 years, contributing to its transformation into a destination for culture, art, and higher learning and creating an indelible legacy of community service that extends well beyond the town’s borders.
