Bouquets to Art 2017
Whispers of subtle charm, gasps of beauty—art is in lively conversation with nature during Bouquets to Art. Wander galleries awash with colorful flowers from March 14 through 19, 2017, with a preview gala on March 13.
The most in-demand floral designers from the Bay Area and beyond, draw inspiration from the art in the de Young’s collection to create arrangements from the strikingly simple to the elaborately intricate. Enjoy a lecture with a friend, make reservations for an elegant seated luncheon, and try your luck in the luxury-prize raffle.
Bouquets to Art is produced by the volunteer members of the San Francisco Auxiliary of the Fine Arts Museums. Over the past 32 years, Bouquets to Art has raised more than $6 million for the Museums’ special exhibitions, conservation projects, and education programs. In 2017, the San Francisco Auxiliary is honored to be a Presenting Sponsor of Monet: The Early Years, on view at the Legion of Honor, February 25 to May 29, 2017.
Tickets will be available starting January 3, 2017. Bouquets to Art information line (415) 750-3504.
