Thursday, January 31 – Sunday, February 3 – Flora in Winter


The Worcester Art Museum and Tower Hill Botanic Garden partner once again during Flora in Winter, a celebration of the impending arrival of spring.  At WAM, breathtaking flowers bloom in the galleries with stunning arrangements inspired by artworks.  At Tower Hill, with a nod to William Shakespeare, the arrangements reflect on quiet times of rest and contemplation, evoking dreams of the growing season and inspiring flower fantasies – creating A Midwinter’s Dream.  WAM’s presentation is generously supported by unum, Fallon Community Health Plan, and People’s United Bank.  Thursday’s opening party,  Flower Power at Flora Euphoria on Thursday, January 31 from 5:30 – 8, is $30 for WAM and Tower Hill members, $50 for nonmembers. Reserve at 508-793-4323, or on line at www.worcesterart.org.  A Floral Demonstration, Lunch and Tour: From the White House to Your House, will take place at the Museum on Saturday, February 2 from 12 – 3, and is $35 for WAM members, $55 for nonmembers.  Call 508-793-4325 (note the different telephone number.)  At Tower Hill, on Friday, February 1, there will be a concert with Lori Diamond and Fred Abatelli from 7 – 9, $35 for WAM/THBG members, $40 nonmembers, and you may reserve by calling 508-869-6111, or reserve online at www.towerhillbg.org.
