Bouquets to Art 2012

Every March, the De Young Museum hosts their famously popular "Bouquets to Art":

The five-day event, produced by the San Francisco Auxiliary of the Fine Arts Museums, features designs by 150 innovative floral designers, who create displays that pay tribute to and draw inspiration from the de Young’s permanent art collection.

Last year was the 1st time I went and I vowed to make every effort to go ever year from now on. It's very crowded, you're bumping into a lot of people, but it's worth it to be able to see how these amazing floral designers created their own masterpieces alongside the original masterpieces in the museum.




















































Out of the 150, these were some of my favorites.

What an amazing idea! I love every one of them. I really enjoy going to Art galleries and Museums, and I adore flower arrangements, so why not combine the two art forms. beautiful pictures, Ms Mad!
