The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here, the season of Spring. Since the start of the pandemic, we have missed out on the opportunity of enjoying last year’s Spring season of 2020. From the warm weather to the sunny skies and fluctuating rainy days, there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel for us to go out and enjoy Spring 2021.
For those who are native of the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia area, one of the many cultural festivities that is highly anticipated is the Cherry Blossom Festival. The Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual event held in Washington, DC in the Spring, and brings out thousands of event-goers to experience the beautiful blossoms, art installations, festivals, culture, and live entertainment. Due to covid-19, there have been changes made for the 2021 Cherry Blossom Festivals and innovated concepts to continue the annual event. One of the unique innovated concepts that have been included in the Cherry Blossom Festival this Spring is called Art In Bloom. which started on March 20th.2021-April 11th.2021
What is Art In Bloom? Presented by Amazon, Art In Bloom ” celebrates the magical and whimsical mystique of the D.C. area, while honoring its vibrant arts scene. A community-wide visual arts exhibition, Art in Bloom radiates spring with 26 oversized cherry blossom statues that have been painted by local artists and placed in all eight wards of the District, plus Maryland’s National Harbor and the Aurora Highlands and National Landing neighborhoods in Northern Virginia.”
The concept focuses on 26 oversize Giant Art Sculptures created by 25 local artists based in the Washington, Metropolitan area. Each of the sculptures is strategically placed in the surrounding neighbors where event-goers, both natives of the area or tourists, can go and check them out. As you venture into the neighbors, you will have the opportunity to share your snapshots of images with the Cherry Blossom Instagram page @CherryBlossFest and tag #ArtInBloom for a chance to be randomly selected to win a $25 (or a $500!) Amazon gift card!
Here’s a look at the 26 oversized Giant Art Sculptures by Local Artists:
