Bloom & Grow is a lush, colorful, and wide-ranging celebration of floral and botanical art. From biblical depictions of the Garden of Eden, to the plein air art of the Impressionists, to the bold stylized motifs in pop culture, depictions of flowers are plentiful throughout art history and visual culture. Bloom & Grow seeks works that continue these traditions, as well as works that push beyond to explore the symbolic, the emotional, the environmental, and the personal connections we have with flowers, plants, and all things that grow outdoors. Outdoor installations and multi-sensory works are encouraged. All media welcome; small to large-scale works; indoor and outdoor works; cash awards will be presented.
