The San Diego Museum of Art’s 37th annual Art Alive returns Thursday, April 26 through Sunday, April 29, 2018, bringing together 100-plus floral designers to transform works of art into exquisite floral displays. As the Museum’s signature fundraiser and a highly anticipated San Diego spring tradition, Art Alive 2018 brings works of art to life during a four-day celebration that will provide support for the Museum’s education and outreach programs as well as special exhibitions. The San Diego Museum of Art is located at 1450 El Prado in Balboa Park.

This year, Natasha Lisitsa and Daniel Schultz, the wife-and-husband team behind Waterlily Pond Studio in San Francisco, have been selected as the Rotunda Designers. The duo will transform the Museum’s famed Rotunda into a blaze of color, bright blossoms, and lush foliage in honor of Nancy Lorenz: Moon Gold, the Museum’s spring exhibition opening on Friday, April 27.

“We’re delighted to present Art Alive for the 37th time to our community,” said Roxana Velásquez, Maruja Baldwin, executive director at The San Diego Museum of Art. “The opportunity to work with floral designers and contemporary artists to bring this vision to life is always an extraordinary endeavor. With funds raised throughout the weekend that go toward education programs and outreach, it’s a San Diego tradition that we are honored to share with the community each year.”

Art Alive 2018 is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, April 27, through Sunday, April 29. General admission is free for members, $25 for nonmembers, $5 for youth (ages 7 to 17), and free for children age 6 and under.
