Art in Bloom – An Exhibit of Art and Floral Design

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On April 3rd

● April 6, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

    Art in Bloom is a collaborative project of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates and Fort Myers-Lee County Garden Council. The project combines art pieces with floral designs. Artwork created by a talented group of artists who have displayed their work and participated in programs at Edison Ford is used as an inspiration for members of the Garden Council and staff of Edison Ford to design their own piece of art using plant materials.
