Have you been to Art Alive at the San Diego Museum of Art? The Museum’s only annual fundraiser, will take place this year from April 11-13, 2014. It is a really fun event where 120+ floral designers create their own floral masterpieces interpreted from famous paintings and sculptures in the Museum’s Collection. These beautiful sights and scents fill the Museum for three days.
I attended Art Alive a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I have always been a big fan of The San Diego Museum of Art and this event is a local tradition for the museum. During the Art Alive weekend, guests will be able to enjoy the floral interpretations, floral lectures, workshops and the family-friendly Garden of Activities, where kids can make flowers from art materials, participate in a Museum-wide flower hunt, and read nature-inspired stories.
Admission is free for museum members, $20 for nonmembers, $5 for youth age 7 to 17 and free for children 6 and under. More details about Art Alive can be found here. Or – You can win a pair of tickets here! I am giving away 2 pairs of tickets to Art Alive 2014. Enter now… The winner will be notified Tuesday afternoon!
Garden of Activities: Saturday, April 12 and Sunday, April 13, Noon – 4:00 p.m.
Great for families, the Garden of Activities features a Museum-wide flower hunt, a children’s reading area complete with nature-inspired stories, and a variety of floral-inspired projects designed for children and families to enjoy together. Activities are free after Art Alive floral exhibition general admission.
