Flower Covered Museum

A few weeks ago, I passed by the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and it was covered in flowers. I'm not sure why, perhaps for their National Design Trienial. I thought it was very colorful so I'm showing some photos here. They have some interesting exhibits here, if you ever want to visit.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

It thinks of how many people that day were sad or angry and watching that show heard a little better ... Uno splendido fine settimana!

The house in a friendly spring look! Very nice.
Thanks for sharing. You have a nice weekend, too!

Gardener Greg said...

I love those flowers. I wonder who made them all.

Keropok Man said...

They just look lovely right?

It makes one stop and want to go in and find out what's inside :-)

Olivier said...

Je voulais savoir, ils font cela chaque année ? où c'est pour une raison specifique ?

I wanted to know, they do that each year? where is it for a specific reason?

Bergson said...

Astonishing and pleasant

Oh wow! What a spectacular photo!! I have been to the Hewitt-Cooper Museum a few times and I love the little cafe nook where you can sit in the round room looking into the garden.

woww...wonderful creation!!
you always come up with interesting snaps...thanks for sharing with us Lori!!

Lori said...

Hello everyone and thanks for visiting!

Olivier et Bergson, je ne sais pas pourquoi il y avais des fleurs comme ça sur les murs. J'ai cherché sur leur site internet mais j'ai trouvé rien. Peut-être j'irai au musée et demander pourquoi.

Greg, I don't know who made the flowers. (Or why they were there.) I tried to find some information on their website but I turned up nothing. I'll have to go to the museum and ask them I guess!

Keropok man, yes they just look nice. No flower fragrance! :)

GE, thanks for including my blog on that listing, that's great!

Ming, I agree with you about that café. It's a lovely spot.

Hello everyone else and thanks for your nice comments today. Have a great weekend and take lots of pictures!

Very interesting and colorful!
You got some good shots of it.

Lori said...

Hi Barb, yes they were just suspended from the front of the museum. I must go by and see if they are still there.

A-xpressions, sure you can add me to your list. That would be great!

Hi Wanda and moi too, thanks for stopping by.

Dina said...

that looks great. my first thought was it's a computer generated picture like photo shop or something.

Very good idea this picture. And all the idea to cover the building with to gives colors to life !

Thank you for visiting my brand new blog about Château Gontier.

If you want to see quickly others pictures about CG, please visit my other blog at

In fact this last blog was the first blog I have created.
But the name and the URL were not fitted with the subject : each day a picture of the town where you live.
So I create the new one.
Good Week End

Hello Lori, this my first visit,
I like the flowers on the building,

Thank you,

That is very colorful indeed, I bet the people who had created those flowers had fun.
