Fine Art & Flowers

Thanks to everyone who helped us ring in the spring at the 33rd annual Fine Art & Flowers, which took place April 25-27, 2014. Thousands of people visited throughout the weekend to view over 40 floral arrangements and garden designs inspired by masterworks in the collection, all created by area florists, garden clubs, and community members from Connecticut and beyond.
