The De Young is blooming

For 30 years, the De Young Museum is celebrating the arrival of Spring with its annual event “Bouquets to Art”.<--break-> 


More than 125 of the Bay Area’s most innovative and sought after floral designers will create a spectacular array of floral arrangements in the de Young Museum for Bouquets to Art.


In creating their arrangements, these designers pay tribute to and draw inspiration from the art in the de Young’s permanent collections. The annual five-day event that showcases floral designs ranging from the stunningly simple to the elaborately intricate, attracts a large and enthusiastic following from the greater San Francisco Bay Area.


Funds from Bouquets to Art have been used to help underwrite an impressive roster of special exhibitions, art acquisitions, educational programs and special projects at the Legion of Honor and the de Young Museum. 


A San Francisco event you won't want to miss whether you have been living here for a while, or you are just visiting!

Bouquets to Art

De Young Museum, Golden Gate Park

free for members.


Our advice: Come early if you can as the bouquets are more beautiful the first days and bring your cameras. They are exceptionally allowed for this show but without flash.

And think about the membership card. It's very advantagous if you go to the museum several times a year.
