Seaside Garden Club, based in Manchester, introduces its 2019-2020 season with a lecture and demonstration from members of the Museum of Fine Arts’ Art-in-Bloom Roadshow.

Art in Bloom  is an annual, four-day period held each spring where about 50 of the Boston museum’s art objects are interpreted through floral arrangements. Many other events happen during Art in Bloom, including lectures and master classes led by world-renowned floral designers, ongoing demonstrations of flower arranging, activities for children and more. Art in Bloom is free to museum members, and is the busiest week of the year for the museum. This presentation will give you some of its background, many examples of Art in Bloom designs, and a floral interpretation of one of the MFA’s art objects.

Social time begins with light refreshments at 7 p.m., followed by the main program at 7:30 p.m. Membership is $30 for the season or $5 per meeting.
