Art Alive 2011 April 29th-May 1

Flowerchild is absolutely thrilled and honored to be one of the designer interpreters for the Art Alive 30th Anniversary Celebration.  I have chosen a print by one of the 20th Century’s most influential and articulate artist/theorists Josef Albers.

Many of you are familiar with this unforgettable floral design inspired fundraiser that provides significant support for the permanent collection of the San Diego Museum of Art.  Those of you who are not, and have a love for flowers, it includes vibrant displays of color, texture and shape, resulting in a not-to-be-missed experience of fun, flowers and fantastic art.  I urge all to view this breathtaking spring exhibition.  I also want all the members out there to make it a priority to attend the Member Preview.  This preview is an opportunity exclusively for Museum members to view the fresh floral arrangements before Art Alive opens to the public. During this time Museum members will also be able to cast their vote for their favorite floral interpretation on display.  Keep your eye out for Flowerchild’s creation that is sure to be the talk of the event.

Art Alive 2011

30th Anniversary

Opening Celebration April 28, 2011 | Exhibition April 29 – May 1, 2011

Celebrating its 30th year, Art Alive is the Museum’s preeminent fundraiser and one of the longest running and most widely attended events of its kind in the United States. The unique exhibition of floral arrangements is created by more than 100 floral designers who take inspiration from the Museum’s renowned collection. The result is an awe-inspiring experience that should not be missed!

During this special time, the Museum is transformed into a glorious spectacle of art and flowers, creating an enchanting spring exhibition punctuated by a host of special events. This year’s celebration honors the artists, designers and the many people who have participated over the past 30 years of Art Alive.  We are excited to welcome back René van Rems as this year’s Rotunda Designer.

As the Museum’s signature fundraiser and a San Diego tradition, Art Alive provides critical financial support for the preservation, presentation and interpretation of the permanent collection.
