Happy 5th anniversary to FORM: ART + floral!! This yearly one-night event pairs eight artists and eight florists to create pieces together based on a theme. 2016 FORM took place at the beautiful Greenhouse Loft with its exhibition titled In/Organic. And as described on their website, “Drawing on Greenhouse Loft’s environmentally-conscious mission, artists will provide work that focuses on perceptions of space, urban landscapes, and ecological themes to be reinterpreted in new and creative floral arrangements.” All the pieces were downright beautiful. We are so lucky to have been asked to document this gathering of creatives. And most importantly, all the proceeds went to benefit Snow City Arts, an amazing organization that provides one-on-one instruction in the arts to children at Rush Children’s Hospital, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, and Children’s Hospital University of Illinois.
