Art Alive

The Museum in Full Bloom

Springtime in San Diego means Art Alive at The San Diego Museum of Art. A blaze of color, bright blossoms, and lush foliage—a garden of earthly delights—the Museum blooms again. With 100+ floral interpretations of masterworks of art and four flower-filled days of events,  Art Alive returns for its 37th year.  Created by top local and national designers, these floral interpretations can be seen April 26 – April 29, 2018. This year Art Alive honors the opening of Nancy Lorenz: Moon Gold. Natasha Lisitsa and Daniel Schultz, the wife-and-husband team behind Waterlily Pond Studio will transform the John M. and Sally B. Thornton Rotunda into a botanical masterpiece.
