 A Weekend of Art, Flowers, and Festivities at SDMA 

The San Diego Museum of Art (SDMA) is gearing up for its most awaited event of the year: Art Alive 2024. This year's celebration is scheduled from Friday, April 26th to Sunday, April 28th, and has something for everyone. This year’s festivities occur in the height of spring blooms, promising to be more captivating than ever, filled with floral interpretations of art, a dazzling rotunda design, and an unforgettable Bloom Bash. Art Alive brings a kaleidoscope of colorful floral arrangements interpreting works of art from the Museum collection, four days of fun-filled events, large-scale art and flower installations, and a garden of activities for families and artists of all ages. Art Alive 2024 celebrates the art of India and will feature a special installation from the Museum’s renowned Edwin Binney 3rd Collection of Indian paintings.

Floral Interpretations: A Tribute to Art

Art Alive brings together local volunteers, many from the floral industry, to create breathtaking interpretations of selected artwork from the SDMA collection. These floral artists use their creativity and expertise to create a floral version or interpretation of the art piece selected, creating unusual and engaging floral displays. It's a unique and beautiful homage to the museum's diverse collection and offers guests a fresh perspective on each piece from the artist’s eye.


The Rotunda Designer: A Spotlight on Talent

One of the big attractions at Art Alive is the floral installation designed and installed in the Rotunda of the museum by a prominent visual artist or floral artist. Each year, the space is reimagined with flowers at the heart of the design, turning the museum’s central entrance and grand stairway into a floral masterpiece. Art Alive's 2024 rotunda designer is Meghaa Modi, India’s premier concept and event designer. She’s the founder, CEO, and principal designer at Meghaa Modi Design Studio. At the core of Meghaa’s work lies a strong commitment to eco-friendly and sustainable designs, reflecting her deep respect and understanding of nature, honed through her intensive master studies in Ikebana. For a deeper dive into her plans for the museum rotunda, follow this link.

The Rotunda Design is an honor bestowed upon the most innovative minds in floral design. Green’s creative director and owner, Carlos Franco, has been honored to design the Rotunda installation for Art Alive three times.
