Art in the Elements


2021 Theme: Music

From Motown to Mozart, Techno to Dolly Parton, music-themed floral installations will fill the woodland paths surrounding Meadow Brook Hall for Art in the Elements, the annual limited-run floral art exhibition.

The tour features music-inspired, large-scale floral art sculptures and displays created by renowned floral artists from around the country.

Immerse yourself in music and flowers! Bring a friend and explore the vast floral installations with themes spanning musical genres and artists, all while getting some fresh fall air. After your tour, head inside the mansion where more expressive florals await.

You’ve never seen flowers like this before! Dozens of artists will translate their favorite music into immersive and interactive floral sculptures. No matter your musical taste, you’ll love this multi-sensory, family-friendly event.

Exclusive for Members! We’re opening an hour early – from 9-10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 11 – for Membership Morning, an exclusive opportunity for members to tour Art in the Elements before it is open to the public.
