This year, a milestone in this exhibition will be reached, as this will mark thirty years of this annual springtime tradition, where gifted floral designers bring imaginative interpretations of floral works in DeYoung’s permanent collection. The week long event will as usual feature various designs including quirky, stunning, or just simply beautiful works. But this exhibition doesn’t stop there with the artwork. Bouquets to Art will have other features as well.
On Monday, there will be an opening night gala and preview from 7 to 10pm. Attendees of this event will be the first to view the exhibits displayed throughout the museum, dine on food and cocktails from McCall Catering & Events, and also enjoy live music and entertainment. Advance tickets are required, beginning at $200 for individuals 35 or younger.
If the gala is out of the budget, there will be other related events to check out, including Floral Design Demonstrations. They will take place at the museum’s Koret Auditorium, and tickets are required. They cost $40 and will include museum admission. Other events include Children’s Hands-on Art Activities, and a benefit raffle.
Bouquets to Art runs until March 23rd. Log on to deyoung.famsf.org for more information.
