The Whirl: Behind the Scenes at Art in Bloom

On June 16, WALTER released Behind the Scenes at Art in Bloom, an exclusive video showcasing the makers behind the North Carolina Museum of Art’s popular Art in Bloom event. This year, Art in Bloom was held over two weekends, with more than 30 participating floral designers creating floral arrangements inspired by art in the NCMA’s permanent collection. In the video, WALTER editor Ayn-Monique Klahre spoke with floral designers Ailsa Tessier, Morgan Howell Moylan, and Carol Dowd about their process as they pulled the final pieces together on-site. WALTER would like to thank our sponsors Fink’s Jewelers, Design Lines Signature, Green Front Interiors & Rugs, and Specialists in Plastic Surgery for making this video event possible. Special thanks to Workshop Media for bringing the video to life.
