“We are so delighted to celebrate this milestone year with a presentation by renowned floral designer Françoise Weeks,” said Eleanor Bond, 2019 event chair. “Attendees will be awestruck as she creates a series of detailed floral arrangements and wearable works of floral art in her extraordinarily unique. By offering two opportunities to enjoy brunch and Francoise’s presentation, we anticipate our most successful event in Art in Bloom’s twenty-year history.”
The March 31 New Orleans-inspired celebration, Joie des Fleurs, will feature live jazz, brunch, a floral demonstration by Weeks, the third annual Art in Bloom Floral Exhibition, and other floral inspired activities.
Weeks, born in Belgium, has infused her work with a quintessential European reverence for flowers and nature. Combined with creativity and mechanical ingenuity, she has crystallized her singular style of Textural Woodlands and Botanical Haute Couture pieces, garnering a global following.
The Art in Bloom Floral Exhibition, on view in the Museum’s Level 2 European galleries, will showcase designs inspired by Louisiana and New Orleans, as well as works from the Museum’s permanent collection.
