MANSFIELD, OH- Mansfield in Bloom kicked off their "Dazzle With Daffodils," event on Saturday.

The event featured live music, educational booths, and art exhibits both in Central Park and at The Green Room Gallery.  Ivan Pellot, Green Room Gallery Owner, said that the event was a collaborative effort.

"Some time ago we decided to do like a outdoor gallery exhibit and we partnered with RCDG and then they came up with the idea, or they have this project of doing thousands of daffodils around the town, and so we partnered together to do it on the same day," Pellot said.

The exhibit features works from local artists such as Jody Odom Sr, Ruthie Akuchie, Robin Morfey, Healther Marks, and artists from the Element of Art.

"So we selected 23 local artists to do this artwork, and then we printed them on vinyl and we have them now displayed all around the park for about six weeks," Pellot said.  "So it's here for everybody to enjoy it."

Art Coordinator at The Green Room Gallery, Victoria Hoefler, said that "Dazzle With Daffodils" may become an annual event.

"The city is actually now talking about doing this as a regular event for Mansfield and planting more daffadils around the city to make it a great perfussion of daffodils and that could be something that is Mansfield's," Hoefler said.
