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.
