Tues., 3/18/14: Bouquets to Arts @ the de Young

Bouquets to Arts is a really fun and fascinating exhibit.  Local florists choose one piece of artwork from de Young's permanent collection and come up with a floral representation of that particular artwork.


The $23 General Admission ticket to Bouquet to Arts (in the Permanent Collection galleries) does not include admission to "Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George."

Here's what de Young's website says about this event:

This year’s presentation of the spectacular design showcase Bouquets to Art marks 30 years of this enchanting annual springtime tradition, when gifted floral designers bring their imaginative interpretations to works in the de Young’s permanent collection. Whether quirky, stunning, or simply beautiful, the designs are always captivating. 

Let's meet at 10:30 a.m. inside the lobby near the front door.

Photography is allowed in the exhibition. 

* There is a $3.00 meetup maintenance fee.

    I thought I had posted some of the photos I took on this meetup site, but it turns out I posted it on my other meetup site. The photos turned out great! Here's the link:

    Wow, what a fabulous exhibit! I had a really good time hanging out with our members. Bruce, thank you so much for the free tickets. I gave the second one to Tricia so that she could check out the Georgia O'Keefe exhibit with me and Marguerite.

    It was neat that although we kept separating, we would end up together every 10 minutes or so.

    The floral designers all did an excellent job on their arrangements. I am truly glad I went.

    Lucy,
    I was at the museum but I did not find the group. I did not get your e-mail about your cell phone number or a description about what you were wearing.

    March 18, 2014

    • Lucy

      That's probably because you didn't RSVP until the very last minute. I emailed my info Thursday night. I didn't see your name on the list as of this morning.

    Unfortunately the museum was very crowded and I did not end up meting the group.

    So Sorry

    Lucy,

    Where is the sign up?? Sorry. I am planning on attending.

    March 16, 2014

    • Lucy

      Upper right-hand corner where it says "RSVP." You can either say "yes" or "no." Please let me know if you don't see it.

      March 16, 2014

  • Dorothy

    Look forward to enjoying art and flowers!! And, new friendships.

    March 15, 2014

    • Lucy

      Hello, Dorothy. If you plan to attend, please sign up by RSVPing. Thank you!

      March 16, 2014

  • Lucy

    For those wondering how we'll find each other in a crowded museum, I will email this group my phone # and info about what I'll be wearing so that you can easily recognize me.

    Let's meet inside the lobby near the front door at 10:30 a.m. As soon as you walk through the front door, turn right and we'll be hanging out right there.

    Please try to arrive on time, but if you're running late, please call or text me and I'll let you know where we will be or where we are.

    We will confirm this when we meet, but for now, let's say that after we greet each other we end up getting separated, let's meet up again in the cafetaria at 12:30 p.m.

    If you don't see us in the cafe line, we'll be seated somewhere inside. I'll try to stand outside the cafe for a few minutes.

      Bruce, are you planning to attend? If so, please sign up. Yes, I would like a free ticket and I'm sure a couple of the other members might also be interested. Thank you!
