I was pleased to be able to find time late last week to attend the final day of the Bouquets to Art exhibit at the de Young museum in San Francisco. It is a short, but fun exhibit where floral designers from all around the Bay Area design floral pieces based off a work of art. It’s a great concept and sounds like it would be a lot of fun as a designer. As a viewer, it’s really interesting to see both the piece of art and the floral inspiration created. Some artists went the route of creating a floral equivalent of the art piece and others took a more interpretive approach. Both were fun to experience.
I went on the last day of the exhibit, so unfortunately it was super crowded and I didn’t have a chance to jot down the artist’s names along with the pieces, but hopefully my shots do them honor enough. I tried to get both the floral piece and the artwork it was inspired by in the photos, but not all were successful due to the crowds. You’ll be able to see that the inspiration for some was about the color or the shape or the texture and for others it was more about a feeling. I really enjoyed looking at them and am excited to share with you some of my favorites.
This one is quite possibly my favorite of the bunch. I liked it because it wasn’t so much about the flowers, but about the movement of the piece. I liked it so much I took 2 photos.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Did you have favorite of the bunch? Let me know in a comment below.
