March 21, 2019 – September 1, 2019
Whether through the rich symbolism of renewal or decay, love or hardship, florals have been captured by creatives since the beginning of art history. Botanicals hold a particularly apt place at Cheekwood. In Bloom: Works from Cheekwood’s Permanent Collection features works that explore the subject of flowers. Through this exhibition, the botanical experience extends beyond Cheekwood’s historic gardens into its galleries.

Cheekwood is pleased to partner with with O’More School of Design at Belmont University for the biannual program, Cheekwood ED: Extended Dialogues. Collaborating with Tony Perrin, instructor of Fashion Design and Merchandising at Belmont, three students were chosen to design and create garments inspired by work in the upcoming exhibition In Bloom: Works from Cheekwood’s Permanent Collection. Belmont fashion students, Samantha Edington (’21), Amy May (’21) and Justice Ybarra (’21) were all chosen to participate. Their designs will be on display in the Museum of Art 2B gallery through May.
Students will have the opportunity to present their process, inspiration and design to the public on Saturday, March 30 from 12 noon – 2 pm during Cheekwood In Bloom. Free with admission. Open to the public.
