Experience “ARTiculture” on Adkins Arboretum Bus Excursion to Philadelphia Flower Show

The long love affair between art and nature—and the artistic expression found in great garden and floral design—will be captured in an extraordinary presentation of the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, held March 1–9 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Join Adkins Arboretum on Tues., March 4 for a bus excursion to “ARTiculture,” the 2014 Philadelphia Flower Show, and explore how exquisite landscapes, gardens and floral arrangements have inspired artists from the Old Masters to the Impressionists to the most creative forces working today. The world’s leading landscape and floral designers will demonstrate that horticultural design is itself a form of art. For the first time, the nation’s first and largest flower show will partner with the country’s most regarded art museums to create a living canvas in ARTiculture.

Tickets are $75 for Arboretum members, $95 for non-members and include transportation, driver gratuity and admission to the Flower Show. The bus departs from Creamery Lane/Aurora Park Drive in Easton at 10 a.m. and from Adkins Arboretum in Ridgely at 10:30 a.m. An additional stop will be added for Chestertown-area participants upon request. The bus will depart for home at 7 p.m.

The annual PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is the oldest and largest indoor flower show, attracting more than 260,000 people annually. All proceeds from the Show support the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, particularly the City Harvest program, which feeds more than 1,200 families each week during the growing season.

The trip is a joint venture between Adkins Arboretum and Academy Art Museum. To register, visit adkinsarboretum.org, or call 410.634.2847, ext. 0.
