Art in Bloom
Friday, March 24
Join Olbrich Gardens on a day trip to Milwaukee, filled with fine art, flowers and fun! The day begins with a visit to the Grohmann Museum on the Milwaukee School of Engineering campus, home to the world’s most comprehensive art collection dedicated to the evolution of human work. Built in 1924 as an automobile dealership, the Grohmann Museum features a 700-square-foot circular mural depicting the great thinkers, eight commissioned stained-glass works replicating paintings from the collection and a green rooftop including large scale bronze sculptures.
Enjoy some free time exploring the historic Third Ward, and grab a bit to eat at one of the great restaurants options, your choice!
Spend the afternoon marveling at Art In Bloom, a special exhibition showcasing stunning art-inspired floral installations in the newly renovated Collection Galleries. Browse marketplaces filled with flowers, clothing, beauty products, garden accessories, and more from local vendors and artisans. Guided tours included at each museum with time afterwards to see more on our own.
