Reminder… the 2016 Artwork Selection Sessions at Mia will be held this week!
· Thursday, January 28th in the Villa Rosa Room: Doors open at 5:30pm, selection sessions begin at 6:00pm
· Friday, January 29th in the Villa Rosa Room: Doors open at 10:00am, selection sessions begin at 10:15am
Each session will begin with information about Art in Bloom (AIB) followed by participants being called up in groups to select artworks as designated by numbered & colored forms received upon arrival. In order to prepare for these sessions, please review the artwork options under the “AIB Selected Artwork” tab. We cannot guarantee your first choice, so come prepared with three or four alternative artworks that you would like to interpret.
Artwork Selection sign-up stations will be as follows:

We will provide you with the numbered and color-coded Artwork Selection Form when you arrive at the session.
Large artwork images will be displayed on the walls of the Villa Rosa Room behind each sign up table. These images indicate the options available. Once an artwork has been removed from the wall, it is no longer available for interpretation. An updated EXCEL spreadsheet of available artworks will be added to the blog on Friday, January 29th.
NOTE: If you are unable to attend either selection session, you may designate a representative to select a piece and submit a form on your behalf. You may also call the Friends Intern desk to submit your request on Friday, January 29th after 12:00 noon.
Our maximum capacity for 2016 Art in Bloom is 165 floral interpretations. We will accept artwork selections until we reach 165 participants or Friday, February 5th, whichever comes sooner. We will also compile a waiting list of 10 alternates.
