MILWAUKEE – The Pabst Mansion has partnered with the Milwaukee Chapter of Ikebana International once again to offer Floral Reflections: Ikebana at the Pabst Mansion. Through this exhibition, floral artists synthesize the beauty of the Mansion and the art of Japanese floral arrangements. Over twenty ikebana displays will be positioned throughout the historic home to express the symbolic qualities of each floral element while also drawing upon the aesthetic, history and design of the Pabst Mansion. By interpreting the past, present and that which flows between through these meditative floral compositions, visitors are invited to reflect not only on this home and the family that once inhabited it, but also their own connections to the wider space and place around them.

All tours are self-guided and there will be both Pabst Mansion docents and ikebana artists present for each tour. For those interested in touring during the evening with live music and floral-inspired cocktails, Ikebana Evenings will take place on Friday, May 10 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Want to learn more about ikebana and see the craft in action? Live ikebana demonstrations will take place at 11a.m. on May 10, 11, and 12. There is no additional cost for viewing demonstrations.

Advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. Daytime tour admission is $18 adult, $16 student/senior/military, $10 child (6-17), $0 child (5 & under), and free for Pabst Mansion members; tickets can be booked online.  The cost for Ikebana Evenings are $23 adult, $21 student/senior/military, and $5 member; tickets for Ikebana Evenings are also available online.

The Pabst Mansion’s gift shop will also feature special items during the exhibition.
