water witch hose companyART in Bloom: CELEBRATING THE 90TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GARDEN CLUB OF NEW MILFORD
May 5, 2013 through September 2, 2013

What happens when you combine art and beautiful decorative objects with flowers?
Art in Bloom at the New Milford Historical Society and Museum.

The Garden Club of New Milford is celebrating their 90th Anniversary in 2013 and to commemorate this special event, we will be opening our season with a new exhibition and interesting programs focusing on flowers, art and gardening. We will be honoring the past ninety years of civic improvement and beautification that the Garden Club has provided our town.

The exhibit will be composed of beautifully set tables with exquisite china and silver from the collection, antique hats, dresses, jewelry and samplers; all inspired in some way by nature. The exhibition will also include highlights of the clubs activities and accomplishments throughout the years.

Come walk through our transformed galleries and enjoy the beauty of everyday objects as it relates to the splendor of our natural world. You will be able to immerse yourself in color and beauty as we eagerly anticipate spring!
