Art Alive 2022 logo

Art Alive returns with a kaleidoscope of colorful floral arrangements interpreting works of art from the Museum collection, four days of fun-filled events, and the first look at an extraordinary new exhibition. Art Alive is The San Diego Museum of Art’s signature annual fundraiser, providing essential support for the Museum’s exhibitions, education, outreach, and public programs. Join us to enjoy an immersive fusion of flowers and art and show your support for the arts in your community!

We are committed to ensuring the safety and comfort of our visitors and our entire community. In the interest of health, safety, and providing a positive experience for all, Art Alive will again be a timed ticketed event. Art Alive 2022 will use timed tickets for admission to reduce lines and to limit capacity for a safe and pleasant visitor experience. As COVID-19 guidelines are subject to change, visit the week of the event for current requirements.

Please note that reserving your timed ticket is required. Limited number of same-day Art Alive tickets available at the Art Alive entry tent.
