Overall Event Chairs: Carol Vance Wall & Terry Wall


Next week, the Montclair Art Museum will host over 40 of the most talented floral designers to create beautiful arrangements inspired by the art in our galleries for the Art in Bloom pop-up floral exhibition on view to the public from May 18–22, 2022

We hope to see you in our galleries, taking a guided tour of the exhibition, or at one of our fundraising celebrations.

Whether you are able to attend our Art in Bloom events or not, you still have the opportunity to bid on exclusive items from our auction. Beginning today, you can preview the Silent and Live Auction items available at Friday and Saturday night’s celebrations at GiveSmart now.



For the first time in the history of this event, you have an opportunity to place an early bid on an eAuction item commissioned exclusively for Art in Bloom! Handcrafted in Philadelphia by Paul Morelli—and generously donated to the Museum by Frederic’s Fine Jewelers—this "Wild Child" necklace is made of 18k yellow gold with brilliant cut white diamonds (.14 carats), pink sapphires (.50 carats), purple sapphires (.45 carats) and tsavorite (.51 carats). It measures 20" in length and is secured with a lobster claw clasp.


“Lariat” floral necklace by Paul Morelli generously donated to the museum by Frederic’s Fine Jewelers.


If our auction items have inspired you to attend one of Art in Bloom’s events, purchase tickets to join us at Friday night’s celebration! 

We look forward to seeing you at the Museum soon. Happy bidding and good luck!
