Many flower arrangers have been busy at the University of Virginia's Art Museum, as they work to prove the grounds around the museum can be just as artistic as what is inside.
The exhibition brings together gardeners from around Central Virginia, both those who garden professionally and those who do it purely for fun.
When complete, the 22 flower arrangements will be interpretations of the art on the walls at the museum. The exhibit is a tradition on grounds that began with a simple goal.
"It was just a great way to get people into the museum so they could see how wonderful the collection is here," said Anne Vanderwarker, an Exhibition Organizer.
The display draws large crowds. It is part of a fundraiser for the museum which also includes a jewelry show and a dinner.
"They love it, they think it's a great way to experience new art and get involved with the community," said Vanderwarker.
Those who are interested can view the display for free all day on Friday at its location on Rugby Road.
