Each year during Art Alive, our largest annual fundraising event and 31-year San Diego tradition, floral designers are invited into the galleries to interpret some of the greatest art in San Diego’s collection. Masterpieces from artists such as Picasso, El Greco, and Matisse can be seen side by side with their floral doubles.
The Museum celebrates these floral-filled days with a host of special events. Whether you come alone or you bring the whole family, Art Alive provides visitors of all ages the opportunity to experience the Museum's collection for the first time or all over again. Come for the flowers, stay for the art.
