In Long Beach’s first immersive pop-up exhibit, “The Art of Bloom,” attendees will explore the relationship between humans and nature. Specifically, people have used flowers as symbols in art and have attributed significant cultural meaning to them throughout history (e.g. bridal bouquets, funerary displays, symbols of peace and passion, etc.). The exhibit— which features AR, creative lighting, and real flowers in a hybrid exhibit of physical and virtual realities— addresses the connections people have forged with the sights, sounds, and aromas of nature and examines how these are conducive to the attainment of deeper states of awareness and tranquility.
