The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts celebrated their 17th annual “Art in bloom“ event.
This is a fundraiser for the museum that pairs pieces of artwork with similar flower interpretations.
The 26 floral arrangements were crafted by the Hagerstown Garden Club. The designers base their floral arrangements on a randomly assigned art piece.
Event coordinators say the flowers can help viewers see things in the artwork they may not have seen before and each person focuses on something different.
“Each of us will see a work of art different, the color, texture, the way the special features are in a painting. So from their eye, this is what they interpret and do in flowers, and we as the public when we see it we get to try to figure out what they were envisioning,“ Wallace Lee said, the development director for Washington County Museum of Fine Arts.
All the proceeds from this event go towards improving and supporting the museum.
