I look forward to the annual Bouquets to Art exhibit at the Fine Arts (DeYoung) Museum located in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park every year. It is an exhibit which fills almost the entire museum with floral arrangements. Each arrangement is created by a different floral artist and is inspired by a specific work of art. They are often very creative, clever and beautiful at the same time. I love flowers and I love art, and this exhibit brings the two together in a memorable and fun way. If you live in the SF Bay Area, this is a must see! It typically occurs in March, and due to the nature of cut flowers, the show runs for less than a week.
This year’s show was wonderful as always. My favorites were the climber bear made of baby roses with hands made of buds (so cute!!), and the black and white arrangement with orchids in the modern art section of the museum, which I feel complements the artwork very well and is a work of art itself.
Visitor tips: Due to the popularity of this exhibit, be prepared for crowds. While the flowers are most fresh during the beginning of the exhibit, the crowds are typically heavier then also. After the exhibit, treat yourself to panoramic views of the city and beyond from the 9th story glass-walled observation deck of the Hamon Observation Tower!
