Project Overview

East Central Regional Library sponsored a bus trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA) exhibition “Art in Bloom”. The Art in Bloom exhibit entailed floral artists displaying flower art that was inspired by an original artwork displayed in the Museum. Two bus loads were taken to the Institute picking up community members on the west side and east side of the region respectively. 292 people attended the event at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
