For a week in April every year, the de Young museum in San Francisco, is transformed by Bouquets to Art, an event that has been drawing people to the museum for over 30 years. It welcomes spring each year with this enchanting and popular weeklong tradition. Its premise is simple: The top floral designers in the city interpret pieces in the museum’s permanent collection using flowers and plant material. This has inspired me to look for note-worthy pieces of art and correspond them to floral designs, that reflect the colours and the character of the paintings.
