What to expect from the next Philadelphia Flower Show
March may be many months away, but it can't come soon enough for fans of the Philadelphia Flower Show. From March 1-9, 2014, the Pennsylvania Convention Center will play host to what the event's website refers to as "the world's longest-running and largest indoor flower show."
While the show won't take place until next year, preparations are already underway. Recently, CBS Philly's Positively Philadelphia took a look at what flower fans can expect to see at the next edition of this event. Next year's flower show will follow the theme of "ARTiculture," which celebrates both art and horticulture.
"We are bringing together pretty much all of the great art museums from around the country," Drew Becher, president of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, told the news source. "The Getty Museum in [Los Angeles] is going to be here. Obviously the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, PAFA, Penn Museum, [and] the Gucci Museum from New York."
According to the event's website, legendary artists such as Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet and Leonardo da Vinci will all be celebrated at the next Philadelphia Flower Show.
The show’s theme is ARTiculture!
Becher said that people who attend the event not only love plants and gardening, but art as well. As a result, those who attend can expect to see not just stunning floral displays, but works of art, such as Andy Warhol photos that haven't been viewed in the U.S. in more than a decade.

Fans of the Philadelphia Flower Show know that "ARTiculture" is the follow-up to the 2013 event, which was titled "Brilliant!" During the last edition of the show, attendees had a chance to explore the genius of Great Britain, and of course, appreciate plenty of beautiful flowers.
