Now through April 10, 2016
Named one of America's Best Spring Floral Festivals by Fodor's Travel, 2015
Presented by Bank of America
The largest floral festival in the Southwest, Dallas Blooms returns with the theme ”The Artistry in Nature” featuring renowned sculptor Gary Lee Price’s Great Contributors Bronze Statue exhibit on display throughout the garden. The garden explodes with 100 kinds of spring bulbs totaling 500,000 blooms and dazzling layers of landscape at every turn.
The Great Contributors exhibit is on display until November 27 and is a part of Gary Lee Price’s renowned art collection. A fellow of the National Sculpture Society, Price has been recognized worldwide for his bold work lifting and celebrating the human spirit. The life-size bronze sculptures that will be placed throughout the spring garden include Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Claude Monet, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Mark Twain and the Wright Brothers, many of which are on benches or in garden settings. These sculptures are only a few of the finest contributors in world history. With the original goal to create 10 male figures and 10 female figures, Price will soon embark on phase two with influencers such as Ruby Bridges, Sacajawea, Amelia Earhart, Mother Theresa and many more.
Dallas Blooms features tulips, daffodils, Dutch Iris and hyacinths, pansies, violas, poppies and thousands of other spring-blooming annuals and perennials. The finale of this spring celebration is the mass flowering of the garden’s collection of 3,000 azaleas that bloom during the end of April.
