Preview Art Alive with large-scale floral installations popping up around San Diego County

As a preview of Art Alive each year, The San Diego Museum of Art brings a floral show to sites around San Diego with our signature Art Alive marketing campaign, Art Alive Petal Pop-Ups. For four consecutive weekends each year leading up to Art Alive, large-scale floral installations are created by our floral partners Native Poppy and Cali Wholesale Flowers at sites coordinated with four different community partner locations around San Diego County. Each location is a secret until launched live on the Museum’s social media channels. Follow the Museum on Instagram, Facebook, and X for updates.
