The San Diego Museum of Art’s spring fundraiser is a full weekend of distinct, stylish events and unique art installations. The benefit, which held its 38th edition from April 11 to 14, annually features four days of events showcasing more than 100 floral interpretations of classic works of art created by top local and national floral designers.
While both events are planned in-house by the museum, they each have their own distinct theme and style. The premiere dinner fits with the overall theme of the Art Alive weekend and the floral installations.
We were honored to be part of the invite-only premiere dinner that gives the museum’s top donors a sneak peek at the exhibit. We transformed the featured gallery into another time and place. This year’s featured gallery was inspired by photojournalist Alfred Eisenstaedt, whose photography exhibition opened at the museum during Art Alive.
His work inspired the evening’s dramatic Art Deco theme, which started in the rotunda with a large chandelier made from more than 3,500 red roses inside glass boxes, created by Floral Art. The gold and floral touches continued inside the dinner itself, which featured more than 40 golden chandeliers from our Moscow Collection. Jewel-tone floral centerpieces and emerald velvet linens completed the elegant look.
