According to Art in Bloom International 2016 Event Chair Barbara Daseke,
“My goal in 2016 is for the community to join honorary chair Linda Ivy and myself at Art in Bloom International, the annual floral symposium and luncheon presented by the Dallas Museum of Art League, on Monday, March 21, 2016.
“This year’s event, which supports the DMA’s exhibition and education programs as well as the DMA League’s Floral Endowment Fund, will feature landscape architect and landscape historian Dr. Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, Gardens Advisor to Historic Royal Palaces. We are also delighted to honor Olivier Meslay, Associate Director of Curatorial Affair and Senior Curator of European and American Art at the DMA.
“Art in Bloom will include a reception and symposium with Dr. Longstaffe-Gowan, followed by a seated lunch and live auction. New this year — the inaugural table design competition, where any level of underwriter, using the theme ‘International’ as their inspiration, can choose to create a tablescape for an additional $500 entry fee. Dr. Longstaffe-Gowan will also serve as the judge of the competition with the lucky winner receiving a three-day spree for two in London, complete with exceptional accommodations, a lunch at Clarke’s Restaurant and a private tour with Dr. Longstaffe-Gowan of Kensington Palace and other historic Palace Gardens (airfare is not included).
“Sponsorships begin at $750 and individual tickets are $175 each and are on sale now. To purchase tickets call Shelby Pearlman at the DMA’s Office of Special Events at 214.922.1364, or visit the Art In Bloom webpage at dma.org.
“Please join me on March 21 for what promises to be a wonderful day benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art!”
