Members of the Bloomington Garden Club have created several floral arrangements that will be on display as part of an exhibit at Indiana University.

According to the Indiana Daily Student, the arrangements were created as part of a two-day flower show. The are currently on display at the Indian University Art Museum.

The creators of the arrangements were charged with the task of creating a bouquet that mirrored the color and feel of some a piece of original artwork in the museum.

One of the flower arrangements features white chrysanthemums in a black container, a design influenced by an ink-on-paper piece of art made by Japanese artist Gibon Sengai. Other artists who inspired the florists include Jackson Pollock, Gustave Caillebotte and Fernand Leger.

"I thought it was an interesting idea, and it's nice that it brought a lot of new people into the museum," Raine Older, a student at the university, told the news source.

A well placed bouquet can do more than just warm one's heart. According to a study conducted at Rutgers University, flowers may help seniors retain memory function.
