“Flowers to Arts” at the Aargauer Kunsthaus has been a great success year after year – the exhibition has attracted up to 18,000 visitors in just six days in each of the last nine years. The floral interpretations by florists and flower designers of works of art from the museum’s rich collection never cease to fascinate; in 2023 for the ninth time.
This year, the popular event again marks the start of spring. From 7 to 12 March, 14 historical and contemporary works of art form the basis for floral interpretations by Swiss master florists and floral designers and two international guests from Graz engage in a creative dialogue. Flowers for Art spans an arc between the two disciplines and provides for surprising perspectives in the viewing of art: a concept that opens up entirely new ways of seeing. Look forward to a sensual and emotional art experience!
Book entry with time slot
In order to guarantee visitors a relaxed and enjoyable exhibition experience in the face of large crowds, the Aargauer Kunsthaus will again control admission in 2023 via time slots.
