About BOUQUETS TO ART at the de Young Museum of San Francisco (compiled from Wikipedia and the book's Introduction): ******Bouquets to Art is an annual floral exhibition hosted by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Florists, designers and garden clubs are invited to present floral interpretations of works in the museums permanent collections, and the floral displays are presented in juxtaposition with the works that inspired them. Originally begun at the de Young Museum in 1984, Bouquets to Art later moved to the Legion of Honor where it flourished from 1996 to 2005. Bouquets to Art returned to the newly reconstructed de Young in 2006 commencing a marvelous new legacy. Bouquets to Art at the de Young showcases work by approximately 150 of the Bay Area's most talented and renowned floral designers. This select group of artists displays original creations ranging in style from the classical to the avant garde. Their floral designs draw inspiration from art pieces in the de Young's permanent collections, and are presented along with art at the Bouquets to Art event. In addition to pairing floral designs with the museum's artworks, the annual exhibition features an extensive program of floral design demonstrations and activities. Since its inception the event has become a cherished San Francisco tradition for both art and flower devotees and draws an avid following from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.******
