February 8, 2016 by braytonbb

Think Spring, huh?  Its a little tough to imagine right now, but Its a little easier to do when I see what is going on in Oshkosh starting in March.

First off, starting off with Rooms of Blooms at the Paine Art Museum, March 3-6 and 10-13th.  If that doesn’t make you think spring I don’t know what does.

This event features more than one hundred artistic fresh floral creations by the most talented designers in the region.  Each creation is inspired by the beauty of the Paine and artworks on display. Inside the rooms of the Paine, floral arangements will adorn the castle with large scale displays to smaller singular arrangements that create beautiful table settings and create spectacular aromas.
