Art in the Elements


See Heroes, Myths & Legends as imagined by floral artists

Meadow Brook Hall’s annual limited-run floral art exhibition, Art in the Elements, features imaginative large-scale floral art sculptures created by renowned floral artists from around the country.

This year’s theme is “Heroes, Myths & Legends.”  From ancient gods and powerful warriors to mythological beasts and fantastic quests, this year’s Art in the Elements is sure to delight the dreamer in your life. Be enchanted by mermaids or inspired by Iris, the Roman God of Color. A kaleidoscope of color and epic tales will fill our woodland paths, be they from gnomes or Big Foot, the most sinister vampire of all and even the Loch Ness Monster. Traverse the great passions and daring deeds of the ancient world with us, as imagined in flowers of every hue.

The experience includes 20 large-scale outdoor floral displays and several interior displays inspired by Meadow Brook’s architecture and collections.

Bring a friend and wander our woodland paths, where beautiful floral art installations will delight and surprise.

Let your imagination run wild across this multi-sensory, family-friendly event.
