Some say that flowers are a work of art, but imagine if the flowers were combined into the works of art themselves. Complementary work of floral arrangements accompanying stunning paintings and sculptures is a combination of the two, in turn creating an all-in-one artistic masterpiece.
That’s exactly what’s happening at the San Diego Museum of Art during Balboa Park’s biggest fundraising event, Art Alive. It’s back and ready to take San Diego by storm with four days of events and celebrations for the art and beauty it brings to the public.
SDMoA will be filled to the brim with flowers from April 28 to May 1. These artistic arrangements will mimic the look of art that is on display all year round. The arrangements are a breath of inspiration with colors and shapes similar to the artwork. More than 70 paintings of artwork will be on display each day during the Art Alive celebration, accompanied by specialist exhibitions and other events.
Museum exhibit recreates famous works with flowers
First, the premiere dinner on April 28 – an exclusive event where donors dress in their best finery. With a $3,000 ticket, these art connoisseurs get a full meal and a taste of a never-before-seen art collection. The entire museum will be saturated with extravagant flower displays providing an incredible ambiance for the event and the upcoming weekend.
The next three days allowed San Diego art lovers to venture to the Museum of Art and witness these floral masterpieces. Each ticket costs $40 and allows one hour to discover all the art exhibitions.
In addition to flowers and harmonious art, there’s the Bloom Bash from 7 p.m. to midnight on April 29. This event is for those who want to partake in the nightlife and see another wild side to the museum. The Bloom Bash offers carnival activities, local food and drink, live music, and exclusive late-night access to the museum for the Flower Show.
Saturday and Sunday feature a garden of activities that provide hands-on opportunities for families where they can participate in arts and crafts activities. Museum staff will teach a lesson in the techniques used by artist Fernando Casasempere in the new exhibit, according to the SDMoA. The Activity Garden can be enjoyed for free with a ticket to the Art Alive event.
Proceeds from Art Alive tickets are used to continue the SDMoA, fund future events and outreach programs, according to the SDMoA website. Tickets are available here.
