With shuttered museums across the globe facing difficulties posed by the coronavirus pandemic, institutions have taken to Twitter to raise each other’s spirits. Started by the New-York Historical Society on Twitter, the hashtag “#MuseumBouquet” is being shared by museums alongside images of iconic floral artworks gleaned from their collections.

The Smithsonian American Art Museum received the first social media “bouquet” from the New-York Historical Society, portraying a painting of apple blossoms by American painter, Martin Johnson Heade. The Smithsonian quickly responded by sharing a painting of vivid sprouts by H. Lyman Saÿen to the Akron Art Museum. Contributions followed from a slew of institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, the Cooper Hewitt, MCA Chicago, and more.

Elsewhere in art, Arts Council England is launching a $188 million USD emergency fund for struggling artists and institutions.
