Needham's Art in Bloom: A bit of our history




              Needham's Art in Bloom 2022 Virtual Exhibit:

                         Needham's Art in Bloom

                                              now in our 14th year!                                               creative floral interpretations of student artwork

Needham's Art in Bloom, Now in it's 14th year, was modeled after the annual spring

Art in Bloom presented by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. 

Beth Shalom Garden Club's goal, inspired by

Sue Kaplan and Allison Shapiro, was to organize

a community event that would engage people of

all ages, interests, and life experiences. 

Garden club members are paired with art work

by talented Needham High School art students

for floral interpretation. 

Needham's Art in Bloom continues to grow with the dedication of garden club members, Needham High School Fine Arts Department staff with faculty coordinator Maria Sartori, and the support from the participants of the Kalmia and Needham garden clubs.   

This event has earned several awards, including a Civic Public Relations Award from the Garden Club Federation Massachusetts in 2018. 

Thank you to our committed sponsor Roche Bros. and to our Needham Public Library Coordinator Gay Ellen Dennett who have been with us since the early years.
