And to illustrate my point further, I’d like to introduce you to ART in BLOOM – the Milwaukee Art Museum’s “stunning art-inspired floral installations” that are exhibited each spring. This exhibit is also a contest. The idea is to create a floral interpretation of one of the paintings in the museum’s galleries. This is the Grand Prize winner:
And here is my own gallery of my personal favorites:
And to take the idea one step further, here is creative inspiration to the fourth degree: a photograph of a photographer inspired by a floral design inspired by a painting.
Creativity is communal and connective this way. We inspire each other, we learn from each other, we appreciate beauty together – differently.
Thank you, my fellow Lens-Artists, for inspiring me each week and inviting me to play along. What a great opportunity to live out Einstein’s words: “Creativity is intelligence having fun!”
Priscilla, I truly love your response to Ann-Christine’s challenge. You are so right and you’ve illustrated your point perfectly. really well done!
So well expressed, Priscilla! Lovely shots and many favourites! I must say mine is your personal favourite number four – love the blurriness and impressionist feeling. Must be great to have such an exhibition yearly. The idea to create a floral interpretation of one of the paintings in the museum is both creative and open to so many interpretations.
Thanks, Ann-Christine! There is great excitement about this every year, and I do know a few people who actually enter the competition.
Oh, no. I’m not a flower arranger.
Beautifully described creativity– we inspire, lean, and appreciate… Well said, Scilla!
I love your favorites. 🙂
Thanks, Amy! May you have a creatively inspired day!
Yes creativity is so personal yet we inspire each other in so many ways.
Thank you! I appreciate your visit and comment.
