It’s hard to imagine living well in San Francisco – or any place, really – without the beauty of flowers. Sometimes you don’t notice them, and sometimes you can’t notice anything else, but when they’re not around you know there’s something missing.
To celebrate the importance of flowers and nature in the enrichment of our lives, the Conservatory of Flowers has asked Stanlee Gatti to create a very special exhibit entitled “One: An Earth Installation,” which will be open to the public from November through March.
Described as “a meditation on the micro and macrocosm,” Gatti hopes the experience will enhance visitors’ “respect and gratitude” for the planet, as well as for friends and family during the holiday season.
Making use of Gatti’s flair for floral design and his artistic approach to creating totally original environments, we are told that the result is going to be like nothing we’ve ever seen before.
The exhibit doesn’t open until November 17th, but we’re already looking forward to it!
November 17, 2006 through March 11, 2007, at the Conservatory of Flowers, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. TICKETS: $5 general; $3 youth 12-17, seniors and students with ID; $1.50 children 5-11, children 4 and under FREE.
