'Art in Bloom' on display

It was the Sixth Annual Art in Bloom flower festival at the Museum of Art and Archaeology on the University of Missouri campus Saturday.

The exhibit features 10 mid-Missouri florists who chose a piece of artwork in the museum to interpret with flowers and greenery.

Last year about 1,500 people viewed the exhibit, and organizers are expecting a similar turn out for this year.

The Art in Bloom exhibit will be open Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the museum near the corner of Ninth Street and University. The museum and event is open to the public and free of charge
