Bouquets to Art

For the past 25 years (unbeknownst to me), the DeYoung has put on an annual fundraiser, “Bouquets to Art.” Local florists donate arrangement inspired by the artwork from the DeYoung’s collection and then the old ladies (and Chris and me now) arrive in droves to oooh and ahhh – and criticize.  And, as Chris pointed out, everyone really is a critic.  “Oh, I don’t care for the way that branch is placed…  I’m not crazy about those colors…  Carnations? Really?”

So the whole thing is pretty hokey – but the flowers are quite lovely and some of them rather clever as well.  A few of our favorites.
