Books in Bloom

Posted on April 18th, 2011 by

“Books in Bloom,” a new initiative hosted by GLA to benefit and celebrate Folke Bernadotte Library, will be held on Honors Weekend, May 6–8, 2011. Based on the Minneapolis Institute of Arts’s “Art in Bloom,” the event features floral arrangements depicting more than 20 different books, films, and periodicals that will be placed throughout the library. Each arrangement is sponsored by a $500 donation, with all proceeds going to fund new acquisitions for the library. Professional floral designers as well as those who simply love plants and flowers will create the arrangements. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Hours are Friday 3–7 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.–6 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m.–5 p.m. A brochure with a brief description of the materials and a map for self-guided tours will be available. Also, student-led tours are scheduled throughout the weekend.
