Bouquets to Art 2024

This summer, the galleries at the De Young Museum in San Francisco will again feature the annual exhibit of artwork-inspired floral installations, which will be decorating the halls with a new hue of lovely flowers.

Now in its 40th year, Bouquets to Art offers new ways of engaging with the permanent collection.

Exhibition Date – June 4, 2024 – June 9, 2023

During my visit, I saw how the vibrant and radiant flower bouquets breathed new life into the paintings inside the museum and transformed the whole ambiance into an art piece.

When two forms of art juxtapose, the result is nothing but beauty and wonder.

If you admire art and if you love dwelling in the medicinal air of beauty then visit the de Young Museum in San Francisco and lose yourself in the sea of beauty.

Explore. Cultivate Inspiration. Live! But for now, let me take you away for a few minutes to a world where flowers pay homage to paintings. Come along!

Bouquets To Art: When Art Blooms in San Francisco

A picture is a poem without words.


Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.

Henry Ward Beecher

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen!

Leonardo da Vinci

The art of a people is a true mirror to their minds!                                  

Jawaharlal Nehru

Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics.

Victor Pinchuk

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for ~ Georgia O’Keeffe

What art is, in reality, is this missing link, not the links which exist. It’s not what you see that is art; art is the gap.

Marcel Duchamp

The work of art is a scream of freedom.


Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.

Edgar Degas

Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.

Jackson Pollock

That frame of mind that you need to make fine pictures of a very wonderful subject, you cannot do it by not being lost yourself.

Dorothea Lange

I want to express my feelings rather than illustrate them.

Jackson Pollock

I think it takes much greater courage to create things to be gone than to create things that will remain.


The object isn’t to make art, it’s to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable ~

Robert Henri

Everything you can imagine is real.

Pablo Picasso

Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still!

Dorothea Lange

I thought I would be understood without words!

Vincent Van Gogh

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into!

Henry Ward Beecher

The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act!

Marcel Duchamp

Bouquets To Art: A Timeless Language of Blooms

In today’s fast-paced world, we often rely on emojis to express our emotions with the click of a button.

But not long ago, the language of flowers held a special place in our hearts, allowing us to convey deep sentiments through nature’s most exquisite creations.

There was a time when a single red rose symbolized a love unspoken, and the sight of golden daffodils could inspire a poet like William Wordsworth.

This enchanting form of communication may seem like a relic from the past, but at Bouquets to Art, it comes alive once more.

At this captivating exhibition, I found myself immersed in a garden of visual poetry, where delicate petals whispered stories of passion, friendship, and the power of art.

And now, I invite you to join me on this journey through a photo essay that captures the timeless beauty and eloquence of the language of flowers.

Together, let’s rediscover the magic of nature’s most expressive medium and celebrate the allure of Bouquets to Art, where the language of flowers transcends time and speaks to our souls in ways that no emoji ever could.

In our modern, fast-paced lives, we’ve grown so accustomed to the convenience of emojis on our screens that we sometimes overlook the natural wonders that surround us.

But flowers, in all their vibrant splendor, possess a unique power to rejuvenate our spirits and make our souls bloom.

As we explore Bouquets to Art and the magical world it reveals, we’re reminded of the unparalleled beauty and serenity that flowers bring into our lives.

In their gentle petals and enchanting fragrance, we find solace and inspiration, reconnecting with a language that transcends words and speaks directly to the heart.

To conclude this journey, let us reflect on the poignant lines of a poem by Dinah Craik, which eloquently capture the essence of the floral world:

My dainty flower, my innocent white flower With such a pure smile looking up to heaven, With such a bright smile looking down on me– (Nothing but smiles–as if in all the world Were no such things as thunderstorms or frosts, Or broken petals trampled on the ground, Or shivering leaves whirled in the wintry air Like ghosts of last year’s joys:)–my pretty flower, I’ll pluck thee–smiling too. Not one salt drop Shall stain thee:–if these foolish eyes are dim, ‘Tis only with a wondering thankfulness That they behold such beauty and such peace, Such wisdom and such sweetness, in God’s world.

Dinah Craik

Let us cherish the timeless beauty of flowers and carry their message of love, hope, and renewal within our hearts long after we leave the mesmerizing world of Bouquets to Art.

Hello. My name is Chirasree. I have been traveling for almost 11 years to places all over the world. I enter into a separate reality during my travels and enjoy the allure of escape from the mundane. I seek beauty through nature and human-made creations. Because beauty is powerful. I seek knowledge. I observe, absorb, and write about the places I visit and the profound realizations and inspirations that each place has to offer.
