The museum invites individuals, groups and organizations to create a still-life floral arrangement in response to a work of art on view in the museum. On April 23, visitors can vote on their favorite arrangements, which will be displayed near the works of art that inspired them. Refreshments will be provided by the Museum’s Gallery Guild.

In the past, entries have been received from school groups, community centers, sororities, and garden clubs, as well as individuals. For inspiration, participants may select from works in the museum’s permanent collection galleries or from the museum’s special exhibitions:

"Treasures from the Earth: Art of Southwestern Native America," "Ten Works by Ten Painters: A Portfolio of Screenprints," and "Art Beyond the Classroom: Selections from the Curriculum Support Exhibition."
