Boston, MA – June 17, 2020—Wilmington Trust, part of the M&T Bank family, is proud to sponsor Art in Bloom, an annual festival of fine art and flowers at the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA). Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the MFA will be closed and the annual program will be held virtually this year. Throughout the month of June, each week the MFA will feature a “flower of the week” that will be shared across the museum’s social media channels and highlighted through individual artwork or a quote from a curator. Visitors will be encouraged to click through for an interactive experience on MFA.org, which will include a narrated video exploring each work in greater depth, an expanded web page, a slideshow, how-to videos, children’s activities, and more. Each week an Instagram and Facebook Story will also feature a flower arrangement created by local florist Jimmy Guzman, showcasing the flower of the week as his inspiration.  
 
 
This year’s artwork will feature:
 
Week 1: Tulips - Featured object: Vase of Flowers in a Niche
Week 2: Irises - Featured object: Horikiri Iris Garden
Week 3: Roses -  Featured object: White rose with larkspur
Week 4: The Garden - Featured object: John, 1st Baron Byron
 
“While we’re disappointed our community can’t experience this beloved tradition in person this year, we are excited that the MFA is able to bring the festival to life online,” said Dave D’Amico, regional market leader - New England. “Wilmington Trust is pleased to continue our support of organizations like MFA that enable the value and beauty of fine art to be accessible to all. We hope this beautiful display provides a peaceful outlet for our community in this time of unrest.”
