Macy's Flower Show Presents Art In Bloom

Macy’s Flower Show® returns to celebrate the renewal of spring at five Macy’s locations nationwide including Macy’s on State Street from Sunday, March 22 through Saturday, April 4, 2015. This year’s theme, Art in Bloom, takes visitors into a multi-dimensional floral fantasy featuring landscaped gardens that celebrate the deep connection between art and nature. The 2015 Macy’s Flower Show features 13 art-inspired gardens on the 9th Floor, each taking inspiration from art genres of the past including Impressionism, Surrealism, Art Nouveau, Renaissance and Pop Art to name a few. It feels like going to one of Chicago’s art museums! Enjoy additional gardens throughout the store and in the store’s display windows, too!
