Floral artisans re-create de Young Museum's works with flowers - San Francisco ChronicleWednesday, March 14, 2018
Flowers flow through Joan McLellan Tayler’s blood. She was born that way, a child of the McLellan flower empire that grew orchids on the Peninsula. As a girl attending the Katherine Delmar Burke School in Pacific Heights, McLellan Tayler would accompany her father to the San Francisco Flower Mart in the predawn hours to shop the floral vendors. At nearly 90 years old, McLellan Tayler regularly shops the Flower Mart, as she did last week while preparing her annual floral entry into the de Young Museum “Bouquet to Arts” exhibition.For the past 34 years, select florists and floral artisans have been invited to re-create pieces from the de Young’s collection of artwork — with flowers. One hundred and 20 (give or take) “exhibitors” select or are assigned one piece of artwork, including the really modern stuff like video installations, and interpret it with flora and fauna. The fragrant results remain on display throughout the museum for a single week. And then, for the most part, they die.“I got my first choice,” McLellan Tayler said of the artwork she’d chosen to re-create with flowers. She has participated in 32 of the 34 “Bouquets to Art” exhibitions, and she fully...
Flamenco Flowers Is Now Open in the Loop - Riverfront Times (blog)Tuesday, July 18, 2017
Heit knew exactly what she needed to do: She decided to buy the shop.Earlier this month, Heit reopened the small storefront as Flamenco Flowers & Sweets(6346 Delmar Boulevard, University City). Her shop is more single-minded: Gone are the dog balloons and quirky candles that previously animated Fleur de Lou. In their place: a beautifully simple space that focuses on flowers and plants, with a few prepackaged kosher chocolates to boot. Heit is a one-woman show. She greets customers at the door and personally designs all the flowers, with striking designs that seem completely at home in the brick-walled space. She's responsible for the store's lushly romantic look — and even wired the pipe-based lamps that light it. It is her baby, through and through. "I've been thinking about all of this for a long, long time," she confides.Indeed, for Heit, a native of St. Petersburg, Russia, the store is the promised answer to a long-ago dream. "I walked into a floral shop in Russia and said, 'This is exactly what I want,'" she recalls. "That was 27 years ago."click to enlarge

Have you seen the fields of sunflowers in Old North and Delmar? This is the ... - St. Louis Public RadioFriday, December 04, 2015
If you took a drive this fall in Old North, along Delmar near Union, or in Dutchtown near Virginia and Liberty streets, you’ve probably seen vast fields of sunflowers waving at you as you pass by. Who is behind these projects to brighten up vacant lots across St. Louis?On Thursday’s “St. Louis on the Air,” Richard Reilly, one of the founders of the Sunflower + Project, joined host Don Marsh to discuss the initiative. Reilly is also the Energy Programs Manager for the Earth Ways Center at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The Sunflower + Project was started in 2013 by Reilly and Don Koster, an architect and senior lecturer at Washington University, after winning the Sustainable Land Lab competition in 2012 in the partnership between Washington University and the city of St. Louis which sought to find new ways to use vacant lots in St. Louis. "It has become a place-making project, a socially-engaged art project, it is an outdoor classroom."The first project was in Old North."It does a lot of things," Reilly said of the project.

Keeb never wanted that. We ultimately decided to travel away, and we’re both very happy that we did. We didn’t have to go crazy with planning a huge wedding. We wish we would have hired a wedding planner. It would’ve been helpful to have someone more experienced and also more familiar with the area to assist us. And maybe we should’ve shared the surprise with more of our close family and friends prior to the big day/announcement.”Taiesha N. Washington & Ke’Onda L.
