pennsylvania_philadelphia_flowershow2014What’s described as “an unprecedented collaboration” is gearing up for the annual Philadelphia Flower Show, set for March 1 through 9, 2014, in the Pennsylvania Convention Center, 12th and Arch streets, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Flower show designers and art museums — together — will turn the exhibition space into a 10-acre living canvas of landscapes, gardens and floral arrangements.

The entrance exhibit of “ARTiculture” will be inspired by the sculptures and style of Alexander Calder, a member of Philadelphia’s historic family of artists, and will feature an aerial dance troupe which will perform above and within the multi-dimensional display.

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will partner with art museums, organizations and institutions for the exhibits in “ARTiculture” and related shows in other arts venues. Participants include the J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles), the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery (Washington, DC), the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation (Philadelphia), the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (Philadelphia), the University of Pennsylvania Museum (Philadelphia), the Brandywine River Museum (Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania), the Brooklyn Museum (Brooklyn, New York), the Noguchi Museum (Long Island City, New York), Storm King Art Center (Hudson Valley, New York), Grounds for Sculpture (Hamilton, New Jersey), the North Carolina Museum of Art (Raleigh, North Carolina), Chora Leone Gallery (Somers Point, New Jersey), Fresh Artists (Philadelphia), the Wayne Art Center (Wayne, Pennsylvania) and the Woodmere Art Museum (Philadelphia).

The show is staged by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, a nonprofit membership organization founded in 1827.
