    A Creative Interplay of Fine Art and Floral Design
    Indulge your senses in a four-day, art and floral extravaganza at the Worcester Art Museum and Tower Hill Botanic Garden. Explore the Museum’s galleries, from ancient Egyptian to 20th-century American, to discover exquisite floral arrangements beside the works of art that inspired them. At Tower Hill, enjoy “Poetic Expressions” floral arrangements interpreting poems selected by the designers. Explore on your own, or join us for these special programs and events.
