“Art is the Flower”: Floral Stories from the American Art Collection

This event is expired.

Throughout art history, flowers have been a favorite subject for artists, designers, and artisans. Aside from the obvious beauty of blossoms and petals, many floral subjects bear additional layers of symbolism and significance. Join Lauren Palmor, Assistant Curator of American Art, as she explores the fascinating stories behind some of her favorite florals in the de Young’s American art collection—tales of adventure, ambition, and inspiration.

All participants are encouraged to engage in the conversation with a live Q&A portion following the presentation. Palmor will aim to cover as many questions as possible during the discussion.
