National Cherry Blossom Festival - Art in Bloom

Put on your confortable shoes and take a walk in the neighborhoods to see some of the beautiful cherry blossom sculptures pictured above. Art in Bloom, presented by Amazon, celebrates the magical and whimsical mystique of the D.C. area, while honoring its vibrant arts scene. A community-wide visual arts exhibition, Art in Bloom radiates spring with 26 oversized cherry blossom statues painted by local artists and placed in DC's eight wards, Maryland's National Harbor, and Aurora Highlands and National Landing in Northern Virginia.

We've often said that Passport DC lets people visit the world without ever leaving Washington. This year, we'll take that a step further. We'll let you visit the world without even taking a step! Passport DC@Home brings the world to your computer or device's screen. We've asked cultural attachés to showcase the best of their countries and answer the question, "What do you want people to experience when they visit your country? Show us." We want to share music, dance, craft demonstrations, conversations, recipes, cooking preparations, travelogues, and lots more. No hills to climb. No waiting. It's on demand to fit your schedule. Passport DC@Home offers a fresh look at the globe from May 1 through 31. Watch our web pages for additional information. Look for Savor the Tastes of Passport DC and a lot more. Learn now. Travel later.
