LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 9, 2004) -- Floral artists from about 25 local florist companies will create spectacularly colored arrangements for the popular “Art in Bloom” exhibit at the University of Kentucky Art Museum in the Singletary Center for the Arts on Rose Street Friday morning, April 16.

The exhibit will be open to the public during regular Art Museum hours from Friday afternoon through Sunday, April 18, said Art Museum director Kathy Walsh-Piper.

The florists will devise creative arrangements using flowers, plants and other natural elements to interpret artwork from some of the museum’s permanent collection and pieces from the current exhibit “A Ceramic Continuum: Fifty Years of the Archie Bray Influence,” Walsh-Piper added.
