The San Diego Museum Of Art Invites You To Bloom Bash – The High-Voltage Kickoff Of Art Alive Weekend

Bloom Bash, the San Diego Museum of Art’s opening celebration for Art Alive weekend and one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year, is back for 2022! Phenomenal, full-tilt fun awaits.

This year’s evening event will feature dazzling art installations by contemporary artist Ian Brill, live music, unique performances, floral-infused cocktails and cuisine from San Diego’s top restaurants, as well as the return of the Ferris wheel.

The Museum galleries are open for special after-hours viewing of the beautiful Art Alive floral exhibition as well as the featured exhibitions TERRA: Fernando Casasempere and Monet to Matisse: Impressionist Masterpieces from the Bemberg Foundation.

What to expect at Bloom Bash

The Museum and the Plaza De Panama (in front of the Museum) will be turned into a high-voltage celebration with craft food and cocktails, art installation, and live music to keep the party going all night, including:

  • Divine delicacies from San Diego’s top fine dining eateries and dessertiers
  • An extravagant selection of custom mixed libations by Cutwater Spirits, as well as a copious assortment of their famous canned cocktails
  • Craft beer by Rincon Reservation Road Brewery, upscale wines, and other delicious thirst-quenchers
  • Stunning contemporary art installations that will dazzle the eye
  • After-hours access to the Art Alive Floral Exhibition
  • Return of the Ferris wheel on the plaza sponsored by Harrah’s Resort Southern California
  • Live music, unique performances, and dancing all night
  • Plus more to be announced…

Ian Brill’s work focuses on the accumulation of form through process. Through the creation of interactive, performative and multi-sensory environments, he considers the boundaries of becoming (versus being) and our immersive relationship with technology.

“Figure-Ground” is an immersive light installation consisting of two structures that will iterate between evolving states of ambiguity and expression. This is a continuation of artist Ian Brill’s exploration of programmatic and performative gestures within custom, architectural systems. Ian Brill was born in 1978, grew up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, New York and has mostly resided in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania since 2001.
