Virtual Art Alive 2020

April 24-26, 2020 | Virtual Event

The galleries may be closed, but The San Diego Museum of Art invites you to celebrate Art Alive 2020 from the comfort of your home with #VirtualArtAlive.

For the first time in the event’s 39-year history, Art Alive will be completely hosted online. Follow the museum’s social channels every day at 3pm for content featuring floral interpretations over the years, Art Alive fun facts, cocktail recipes, and more. Museum visitors will also have the opportunity to submit their own photos and memories of Art Alive for a chance to be featured!

Virtual Art Alive Weekend will feature a dance party, new online exhibition, and Garden of Activities, including:

  • Dress up, make your favorite cocktail, and join the live Bloom Bash party with a music set by DJ Gabe Vega on Friday, April 24, at 7pm via Instagram Live.
  • Keeping with the tradition of featuring exquisite interpretations of famous works of art, #VirtualArtAlive will feature an online exhibition of works interpreted by designers using items from home.
  • End the weekend with a step-by-step tutorial for making crepe paper flowers at home on Sunday, April 26.

Art Alive is the museum’s annual fundraiser in support of education, outreach programs and special exhibitions. All events during Art Alive weekend, including Bloom Bash, are available to the public for free, but suggested donations will be accepted for those who wish to donate.
