Art comes in many forms.

For George Mitchell, a Palos Park resident, flowers are his art.

On April 9, in front of a room of roughly 67 women in the McCord Gallery & Cultural Center in Palos Park, Mitchell demonstrated his art in a program that incorporated music and some storytelling, along with flower arranging, to showcase his skills and inspire others.
