It’s Spring! Bouquets to Art at the DeYoung Museum

Sometimes when one is so focused on where to go next in this big, huge world, we lose sight of things close to home.  A saying uttered by Dorothy Gale in the Wizard of Oz comes to mind when she was asked a question, “What did you learn?” by Glinda, the Good Witch of the North.  Dorothy replied “when looking for your hearts desire, sometimes you don’t have to look further than your own back yard.”  That being said, I’m sharing with you something I found in my own back yard.  Even though it’s a bit overcast today in San Francisco, here is a way that a local museum is celebrating the arrival of Spring.

For the last 33 years, the DeYoung Museum has hosted an amazing event working in collaboration with more than 120 of the most in-demand floral designers from the Bay Area and beyond, who are tasked with drawing inspiration for their floral arrangements from the permanent collection of art in the museum.
