Dümmen Orange has found a new vehicle to connect people with plants — art. The company participated in the Art in Bloom event held in Columbus, OH, the third week of April 2018. Stunning floral designs created by imaginative floral designers graced the galleries of the Columbus Museum of Art during the popular event, and the designers were on-hand for a meet-and-greet with attendees that signed up for a Secret Garden Preview night.
Dümmen Orange helped kick off Art in Bloom with its Fashion in Bloom show, where attendees enjoyed bite-size delights from Columbus eateries and listened to soulful jazz music from the Jazz Gallery project. The big draw of the evening was a floral-inspired fashion show featuring designs from Larissa Boiwka, Esther Hall, and Horacio Nieto.
In addition to Fashion in Bloom, Dümmen Orange hosted Symphony with Monet, an afternoon event that combined art, music, and plants in a unique way. The event included a talk on Monet’s works by a museum curator, and Cleveland floral designer Scott Robertson of Stems Fleur, the events featured installation designer, created live floral arrangements to the sounds of classical music performed by the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. Robertson is an Ohio native who enjoys gardening, decorating, and art. He has designed with flowers and art for more than 25 years and finds music very inspirational for his work.
Attendees to the Symphony with Monet event had the chance to take one of Robertson’s floral designs home thanks to a silent auction. They also left with a memento of the event in the form of a beautiful mini-bouquet. Dümmen Orange provided all of the plant material for Robertson’s designs and for the mini-bouquets.
The Art in Bloom event is a fundraising event presented by the Beaux Arts Auxiliary of the Columbus Museum of Art.
