Blooms & Books with Lewis Miller
Flower Flash, Book Signing, and Meet & Greet with the Artist
Join us in celebrating the opening day of our captivating new exhibition, Human / Nature: Encountering Ourselves in the Natural World! To kick off the festivities, we're making your Friday extraordinary by opening our doors bright and early at 9 AM for a day filled with excitement and floral enchantment. The first 20 guests to arrive on Friday morning will receive free museum admission to explore our three exhibitions on view!
Renowned floral artist Lewis Miller will be gracing the streets just outside the museum with one of his breathtaking "Flower Flashes." Whether you're headed to work or strolling by, stop and create a beautiful bouquet for a loved one or treat yourself to a moment of self-care with blooming beauty.
Following the floral extravaganza, meet the creative genius himself! Head to the museum lobby, where Lewis Miller will be signing copies of his latest book, Flower Flash, published by Monacelli. This gorgeous and poignant visual diary traces the phenomenon from the first, spontaneous Flower Flash to the even more profound installations of the pandemic through a kaleidoscopic collage of photos documenting the Flower Flashes, behind-the-scenes snapshots, Miller's inspiration material, fan contributions, and more.
That’s not all: embrace the spirited energy of Miller's street art installations with the exclusive Flower Flash candle, available for purchase during the event. Take a piece of the magic home and let your space bloom with the same creativity and passion that fills the streets during a Flower Flash.
Need a little zen to finish your week off strong? Join us for Morning Mindfulness, a special guided mediation honoring our indigenous nature within.
Mark your calendars for a morning filled with flowers, art, and inspiring energy.
