SDMA's 'Art Alive' Blooms with Floral Artistry!
Art Alive 2012 started off with a festive champagne reception April 12th, 2012 amidst a floral fantasy of San Diego Museum (SDMA) of Art masterworks interpreted by floral designers. The reception of VIP patrons kicked off 4 days of events that were positively bursting with bubbles, culinary tastes including Giuseppe's Fine Catering, and creativity by Jim Lennox of Pacific Event Productions.
Jim Lennox produced the inspiring rotunda centerpiece. Jim's breathtaking floral work transported guests to a wooded fantasy bursting with flowers.
Among the guests there enjoying the festivities were May Zawaideh, Emma and Leo Zuckerman, Bill Van DeWeghe, SDMA Executive Director Roxana Velasquez, Diane Szekely, Margaret and Michael Grossman, Abeer and George Hage, Maurice Kawashima, Lynda and Richard Kerr, Tom Gildred, Toni and John Bloomberg (their Picasso hangs upstairs in the museum), the designer Jordan and David Masterjohn, Rose Marie and Charlie Pipitone, Sue and Bryce Rhodes, and the colorful Zandra Rhodes with Salah Hassanein.
Lehn Goetz and Jacki Johnson Widder served as Art Alive Chairs, and Sarah B. Marsh-Rebelo and Valerie Cooper served as the Chairs for the Art Alive Champagne Patrons.
Nearly 80 floral designers participated in this 4 day event.
