Benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art's exhibition and education programs and the DMA League's Floral Endowment Fund
The Dallas Museum of Art League hosted their signature fundraiser Art in Bloom 2018: Power of Flowers on Monday, March 26, 2018. Chaired by Dyann Skelton, the luncheon benefits the Dallas Museum of Art’s education programs and the League’s Floral Endowment Fund. This year the designated education program beneficiaries are:
The DMA welcomed New York artist Michael De Feo, known as the Flower Guy, who delighted and entertained us with his floral interpretations while sharing his unique path to success. After the presentation, guests enjoyed a seated lunch, with silent and live auctions in the Museum’s Atrium. The day continued on the Level 2 European Galleries with a viewing of Flowers – An Exhibition, a display of floral arrangements created by local floral designers and inspired by works of art in the DMA's collection. Art in Bloom 2018 Patrons and Sponsors were the first to view this incredible show at the Patron/Sponsor Party on March 23, before the exhibition opened to all DMA visitors.
