I wanted to let you know that although we have cancelled this year’s in-person Bouquets to Art, our annual floral takeover event at the de Young museum, we are still going full bloom on our virtual channels.
Join us online June 1–7 as museum curators, conservators and featured floral designers bring your favorite floral content to the comfort of your own home. Programs include a talk from celebrity florist Philippa Craddock, whose portfolio includes the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as interactive demos from the museum’s Flower Committee, floral-themed games, and more.
Below is a list of the week’s free virtual talks and you can find a more detailed programming list here.
Tune in to our exciting live, daily floral programming June 1–7 on Facebook and Instagram! Our robust schedule of talks will highlight the history of Bouquets to Art, the staff that makes it all possible, celebrity florists, and even a tour of the San Francisco Flower Mart. Check back daily to watch recordings of talks you may have missed.
