DALLAS (SMU) – SMU’s Meadows Museum will welcome spring with fresh flower arrangements inspired by medieval masterpieces from the Sistine Chapel. The Founders Garden Club of Dallas will present on March 25 its annual exhibition, this year entitled “Floral Illuminations.” 

The exhibition of 20 floral arrangements and related artwork in the Virginia Meadows Galleries is free with museum admission.

Garden club members will create fresh floral arrangements, place settings and artwork inspired by the intricate designs featured in Meadows’ current exhibition “Lost Manuscripts of the Sistine Chapel: An Epic Journey from Rome to Toledo,” 

The annual event is a favorite of museum-goers, says Bridget Marx, Meadows Museum associate director and curator of exhibitions.  “The arrangements are works of art themselves, and always make our patrons look at the collection in a new way.”
