Bouquets To Art
Hosted at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, Bouquets to Art is the largest fundraiser held to benefit the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and is considered to be one of the country's premier floral events. Pat Gibbons has been invited to participate since 1989.
The three photos shown here are from past events, where Pat has designed arrangements based on the essential elements of the paintings. The first arrangement is based on the painting "The Russian Bride's Attire" where Pat brought in rich colors to create an ornate, elegant look using orchids, roses and calla lilies. The middle picture captures the line and movement of the painting "Falling Petals" with a swirl of willow branches and red roses. The last piece, designed with slender branches, phalanopsis orchids and leaves depicts the lines and organic elements of a John Cage print.
Bouquets to Art features floral arrangements and designs which interpret and complement the museum's exciting art collection.
