The San Diego Museum of Art is bringing spring inside gallery walls at its 29th annual Art Alive event, April 29-May 2. Award-winning floral designers from across the country will create floral arrangements inspired by pieces in the museum’s permanent collection.
With vibrant displays of color, texture and shape, “Art Alive invites visitors to experience art in a new way,” says executive director Derrick Cartwright. The popular event, drawing in more than 10,000 attendees each year, has become the museum’s primary fundraiser.
Special events include an opening celebration on April 29, floral demonstrations and an after-hours party with music and cocktails on April 30, and a flower-inspired family arts workshop on May 1. Visit www.sdmart.org to purchase tickets to any of the events.
