Bouquets to Art 2012

I have made it an annual tradition to attend Bouquets to Art at the De Young Museum and it was so fun this year to have Jane with me. She was INCREDIBLE- absolutely zero fussing or crying. She really loved seeing all of the people, art, and floral arrangements. Here we are in the lobby of the De Young after viewing the installations.
They do not allow flash and given the large crowds, many of my photos turned out blurry :-( but here are a few of the highlights from my perspective. I LOVE the gradation in the colors of the flowers
I also loved the different colors in this large piece- and I particularly like how the tulips are positioned on top.
This installation is mimicking the flow of the folds on the dress of the statue in the background (the flowers conveyed even more movement in person).
This one was a fairly literal interpretation of the art behind it but I think they just did a great job of capturing a few of the essential features- and displaying it on the yellow table top is really a genius idea
There were a few super random pieces this year, like one that had guns and bullet casings on it when it was just a type of color block abstractions. But the really random one had this oxygen tank in it- the top part with the tulips looks like the yellow piece in the background but I still cannot figure out why the oxygen tank was included. Let me know if you have any insights :-)
I'm already looking forward to next year!
