This spring, an explosion of color rocks the R.W. Norton Art Gallery inside and out. Just as our botanical gardens burst forth with blossoms, BLOOM! bestows upon us an exhibit of canvases crowded with pigmented petals. With over 358 submissions this year from over 16 countries around the world, it was truly difficult to select the fifty pieces that make up this year’s display. But now you can enjoy the beauties of nature without the perils of pollen or bad weather as you stroll along through our garden-inspired galleries. This exhibition will be open from Friday, March 24 - Sunday, May 7, open from 1-5 p.m. on Thursday-Sunday. Admission is free.
