9th annual Bloomin’ Holidays at the Museum of Wisconsin Art | By Jennifer Turner

West Bend, WI – Join the Museum of Wisconsin Art as art and flowers come together for the 9th annual Bloomin’ Holidays. This year’s theme—Brittle Beauty—was inspired by the upcoming International Year of Glass, the MOWA’s exhibition on view, The Studio Glass Movement in Wisconsin: The Hyde Collection, and the ephemeral, delicate beauty of floral arrangements.
