Virtual Talk 11-30-23: Art in Flower: Finding Inspiration in Art and Nature

Thu, Nov 30, 2023
2:00 PM- 3:00 PM

Based on Lindsey Taylor’s popular Wall Street Journal column “Flower School,” on its surface Art in Flower: Finding Inspiration in Art and Nature demonstrates how Taylor creates stunning but achievable floral arrangements inspired by works of art. Riffing on works by a diversity of artists across mediums, periods, and styles, including Alice Neel, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julie Mehretu, Sheila Hicks, Willem de Kooning, Georgia O’Keeffe, Frank Stella, Salman Toor, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Kerry James Marshall, among others, Taylor inspires readers to interpret the palettes, compositions, brushstrokes, and mood of the art in flowers, and shares florists’ trade secrets for building beautiful arrangements. Through this meditative practice of looking intently at art and nature, readers learn, in the words of David Hockney, “to really look,” and to really see the world.
