SAN FRANCISCO—On Monday, March 13, the de Young Museum kicked off its 33rd annual Bouquets to Arts exhibition. The artists have been working to set up colorful displays for the annual Bouquets to Arts exhibit at the de Young Museum.
The event pairs local floral designers with actual pieces in the museum’s collection. The designers create floral interpretations of their piece that are displayed alongside the museum. At least 125 designers have been creating pieces using flowers and inspiration from the artwork in the museum.
The Bouquets to Art exhibit is a huge fundraiser for fine arts museums. A few of this year’s pieces honor the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, which the de Young will commemorate starting April 8 with their Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll exhibition.
Bouquets to Arts runs this week only through Sunday, March 19. Admission is included with a regular museum ticket, and free to de Young members
