Art in Bloom 2022
Art in Bloom 2022: In Full Bloom Presented by First Horizon
One of the most anticipated springtime events in New Orleans, Art in Bloom showcases spectacular floral designs created by garden clubs, floral designers, and creative talents from New Orleans and beyond.
This year’s theme, In Full Bloom, celebrates, through floral expression, a renewed joy for togetherness. In addition to fabulous floral installations on view for five days at NOMA, Queen Nefertari’s Egypt will also be on display during Art in Bloom. Nefertari, the royal wife of Pharaoh Ramesses II, is linked to some of the most magnificent monuments of ancient Egypt.

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.
