Bouquets to Art 2021

Floral designs inspired by art

June 8-13,2021


Bouquets to Art is back in the galleries this year to celebrate the summer season in its 37th year with a new palette of fresh flowers in June. Inspired by works of art in the de Young museum’s galleries, the weeklong display of floral installations offers new ways of seeing the permanent collection. While the galleries are blooming, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco host an Opening Night event, a luxury raffle, and demonstrations and experiences with renowned floral designers as speakers.

Though we hope to return to the galleries in June, kindly note that all on-site events are subject to change or cancellation in accordance with city, county, and state health guidelines. Please visit this page for the most up-to-date information.

General admission tickets to view Bouquets to Art will be available in late April.
