Art Alive 2013
Thursday, April 25, 2013–Sunday, April 28, 2013
During the 32nd annual Art Alive exhibition, 103 floral designers present exquisite floral interpretations of famous works of art. As the Museum’s signature fundraiser and a San Diego tradition, Art Alive 2013 brings the Museum's Permanent Collection to life in a unique and beautiful way, including vibrant displays of color, texture and shape. In addition to three full days of activities and celebrations, Art Alive 2013 Rotunda Designer Bella Meyer, granddaughter of artist Marc Chagall and founder and creative director for FleursBella Beautifiers in New York City, will transform the Rotunda into a breathtaking floral experience for visitors as they enter the building.
