It’s been an odd winter and it’s hard to believe that spring has sprung… Yet, that blooming time of the year has arrived at the NCMA! Art in Bloom was held on March 22-25 and, of course, I attended with friends and took photos of the floral arrangements in my galleries. My personal impressions are below and I’m starting with the Mesoamerican gallery.

There’s always a first. In the past, I have always enjoyed the arrangements created for the works of art in this gallery, but this floral design does nothing for me. I really cannot feel the Mesoamerican-ness (yes, I just made up that word) with the combination of plants selected here. I don’t feel the earthiness, the traditions, the culture… I don’t see or feel the warrior either… I just don’t.
