Rockford Art Museum is pleased to present the eighth annual In Bloom @ Union week happening June 12th through 16th. Due to ongoing construction happening at Rockford Art Museum, this extraordinary exhibition will happen at Union Event Space in downtown Rockford. Designers will use flowers and other organic material to interpret pieces of art from our Permanent Collection, showcased in the Union’s beautiful, historic building.

In addition to the unique combination of artistic talent on view, we will be hosting the seventh annual Fashion in Bloom on Friday, June 14th. This year’s runway will spotlight gorgeous, fresh floral accessories and living couture by regional designers, as well as vibrant fashions from local fashion boutique B Jones. This event includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and music by Luxe Productions.

A limited number of tickets will be sold, and reservations are required. Proceeds benefit Rockford Art Museum exhibitions and programs.
