Art and flowers combine in the 185th Philadelphia Flower Show to create ARTiculture, a living canvas unlike any other. The annual event is the first and oldest indoor show. This year, the best landscape and floral designers will work together with esteemed art museums to give visitors an attraction they won?t soon forget.
The Guggenheim Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Brandywine River Museum, and others will work with floral partners to create works of art that compliment the living horticulture. A partnership like this has not been done before at the Flower Show.
Flowers are only part of the fun at the show. Visitors are also treated to live entertainment, cooking lessons, gardening how-to workshops, and expert advice as they walk the convention center floor. Special events include a session with television star Rachael Ray and a Girls Night Out party.
The Flower Show has a rich tradition in Philadelphia. It began in 1829, when 25 members of the Philadelphia Horticultural Society displayed a variety of plants, and it has grown to encompass 10 acres in the Philadelphia Convention Center with more than 265,000 people visiting each year.
Proceeds from the show benefit the Philadelphia Horticultural Society and their City Harvest program, which feeds families during the growing season. To learn more about the Philadelphia Flower Show, click here.
