Making It Grow with the CMA
Saturday, April 17 | 11:00 a.m. – Noon | Vimeo Live
SCETV’s weekly gardening show comes to the CMA! Host Amanda McNulty receives a tour of the collection galleries from CMA Curator of Education Glenna Barlow and then heads back to the studio to create an art-inspired flower arrangement in celebration of Art Blossoms. Follow along to build your own floral arrangement using items from your house and garden, or with materials provided by the CMA that can be purchased as an add-on when you register for this event. Event registration includes advance viewing of this episode segment of Making It Grow and an exclusive live Q&A with McNulty. Arrangement add-on includes materials needed to get your arrangement started: vessel liner, wet floral foam, and Spanish moss.
$20 for virtual event / $15 for arrangement add-on materials. Please register by April 1 to have arrangement kit available for pick-up at the CMA between April 14 and 16. Priority registration for members only through Friday, February 12.
