Masterpieces in Bloom: Spring Flower Show Brings Timeless Artwork to Life
Look past the canvas and watch as flowers paint our display rooms with classic art pieces at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens for our Spring Flower Show. This year’s theme, “Masterpieces in Bloom,” will allow visitors to see the works of Van Gogh, Monet and countless other famous artists blossom into stunning floral displays. A beautiful spring day gets even more beautiful with a journey through our brightly flowered display rooms. In Palm Court, guests step through a larger-than-life picture frame and into the world of Edmund Leighton’s “Lady in a Garden.” Pink and red snapdragons, white stock and colorful tulips will surround the focal lady of the painting, whose dress will be made of white orchids. The Serpentine Room’s winding paths will surround guests with swirls of grape hyacinths, delphiniums, tulips, forget-me-nots and primula in varying shades of blue to recreate the night sky of Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”. “We wanted to make sure that the plantings and the design in the room would reflect the recognizable parts of the paintings, such as the woman’s long white dress in “Lady in a Garden” or the stars from “Starry Night,” said Jordyn Melino, exhibit coordinator at Phipps. The East Room will finish off the show with a true interpretation of “Tulip Field in Holland” by Claude Monet. A windmill positioned in the back of the room will tower over beds filled with hundreds of red, orange, yellow and white tulips, while grape hyacinths and cineraria will make up the blue water of the painting, providing a vibrant finale to this artistic show.
