Spring time at the Denver Art Museum

We finally got around to changing out the arrangement for the Betty Woodman vase at the Denver Art Museums.  This is a project that my friends Judy, Liz and I have taken on since 2008 when the museum purchased the vase.  We still had the winter arrangement on display (well March was a very snowy month!).   Spring is trying to popping her head up here and there so we decided on an arrangement with tall grasses, orange glads, deep purple irises and a variety of spring green leaves.  I have written about some of our past arrangements in the past.  We usually change it out three to four times of year depending on what exhibits are at the museum where we can play off that theme or we design it around the seasons.

Below is a brief description and history of the Woodman vase.
This fall, the Museum has an outstanding exhibit coming in October, Passport to Paris.  This exhibition will showcase the rock stars of the art world— Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and more.  It will focus on French art from the late 1600s to early 1900s and explores changes in art and society during three important centuries in art history.
We already have ideas on what our next arrangement will be.  But in the mean time,  we will all be out in our gardens cleaning them out, weeding and putting in our annuals and perennials.
