Patron and Preview Party | Wednesday, March 23, at NOMA

Art in Bloom kick-off with cocktails, cuisine, live music, and a silent auction featuring original works of art from established and emerging talents.

SOLD OUT | Art in Bloom Lecture Series | Thursday, March 24, at NOMA | 9:30 AM & 10:45 AM


9:30 AM – Dr. Jim DelPrince is an Associate Professor and Horticulture Specialist with Mississippi State University and leader of the Master Floral Designer program, a Laureate Member of the American Institute of Floral Designers, and recently inducted into the Society of American Florists’ American Academy of Floriculture.

In 2016, DelPrince won the coveted Award of Service to the Floral Industry from the American Institute of Floral Designers. He has authored or co-authored books on floral design, interior plantscaping, floristry history and terminology, and numerous scholarly articles and publications. This year Jim will be working with MSU faculty to aid Mississippi, Louisiana, and Alabama Christmas tree growers to build their value-added product business by selling and marketing wreaths, swags, garlands, and arrangements.

10:45 AM – For over 20 years, Christopher Spitzmiller has created iconic ceramic lamp designs. He began his career in 1996 in Washington, D.C., then moved to New York City in the fall of 1999, where he continues to create his one-of-a-kind lamps with a crew of skilled artisans. Christopher’s work is often featured in celebrated publications such as Architectural Digest, Town & Country, Elle Décor, Veranda, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. He has had the honor of making lamps for the Oval Office, the past four White House Administrations, the Blair House, and many other distinguished American homes.

As of late, Christopher has expanded his designs to tableware and other ceramic accessories. When not in the Studio, Christopher can be found at his farm in Millbrook, NY gardening, beekeeping, making jam, cooking for friends, or tending to his flock of heritage breed chickens, all captured in his book A Year at Clove Brook Farm.

SOLD OUT | Luncheon and Fashion Show featuring looks from SOSUSU and Tanya Taylor | Thursday, March 24 at City Park’s breathtaking Pavilion of the Two Sisters | 12:30 PM


Virtual Silent Auction | Starting Monday, March 21
