Bouquets To Art 2012: deYoung Museum

"Celebrate spring at the de Young, with the return of Bouquets to Art, the glorious annual floral exhibition and fundraiser. This five-day event, now in its 28th year, is produced by the San Francisco Auxiliary of the Fine Arts Museums, and features designs by 150 innovative floral designers who create displays that pay tribute to and draw inspiration from the de Young’s permanent art collection throughout the museum.Bouquets to Art is the largest fundraiser held to benefit the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Proceeds from this fundraiser support education and special exhibition programming at the Museums."

We hope you all got a chance to tour the de Young Museum during Bouquet's to Art this year or have gotten the chance to in past years, it really is something you don't want to miss.

Michael Daigian Design has been a part of this fabulous ode to art since it started 28 years ago.We had the honor of participating in Bouquets to Art once again this year with 2 special pieces of art as our inspirations, Cornelia Parkers "Anti-Mass" and Mark Rothko's "Untitled".

Michael's design inspiration was Mark Rothkos "Untitled 1949" and was featured in an article on the 2012 Bouquets to Art by the SFGate.

Jennifer Lato, our Lead Designer, was responsible for creating a beautiful floral sculpture inspired by Cornelia Parkers " Anti-Mass 1956".

The week leading up to Bouquets to Art we also had the amazing opportunity to create a special display for Gump's again this year, the inspiration was "taking flight". Gump's has been wonderful in supporting Michael and his talent for creating one of a kind floral displays.

The Egret was first made with fresh flowers for the " Taking Flight" event at Gumps.

The Egret was then made out of non-floral elements to have it looking good while it was on display for over a week.
