The floral interpretations are created by top local and national designers, and the museum’s classic rotunda will be transformed by Natasha Lisitsa and Daniel Schultz, the husband-and-wife team behind Waterlily Pond Studio in San Francisco.
Last year the event welcomed more than 12,000 attendees and set a new record for funds raised.
“We’re delighted to present Art Alive for the 37th time to our community, especially as it coincides with the launch of contemporary artist Nancy Lorenz’s Moon Gold exhibition,” said Roxana Velásquez, executive director. “The opportunity to work with floral designers and contemporary artists to bring this vision to life is always an extraordinary endeavor.
“With funds raised throughout the weekend that go toward education programs and outreach, it’s a San Diego tradition that we are honored to share with the community each year,” she added.
The annual exhibition is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The exhibition is free for members and $25 or others.
For children, there is a “garden of activities” on both weekend days while parents tour the museum’s floral displays.
On Friday night, the Bloom Bash opening celebration takes over the museum from 7 p.m. to midnight with fine dining, craft beer, live music, and dancing. Tickets for this fundraiser are $200 for members and $250 for others.
