A big thank you to those that came out to join us for LOTUS LIVE on July 15!
The GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for Largest human flower now belongs to the Asian Art Museum thanks to you. Over 2,400 people (2,405 to be exact) joined together to in the spirit of peace, unity and inclusivity.
Remember, the museum's Flower Power exhibition is running through October 1, 2017. Not your typical Summer of Love experience, the exhibition features historic and contemporary works of art from across Asia that explore the symbolic potency of
botanical imagery to express universal human values.
From large-scale installations representing climate change concerns to interactive works of art promoting peace to sensory-igniting
multimedia, Flower Power offers a sanctuary for contemplation and reflection.
About LOTUS LIVE
Part human be-in, part artwork, part celebration of the museum’s Flower Powerexhibition and the 50th anniversary of San Francisco's Summer of Love and ALL FUN!
Rising from muddy waters, the lotus is recognized as a symbol of transcendence and beauty untainted by hardship. LOTUS LIVE invites all to stand united and rise above challenging times, to express our cherished San Francisco values of diversity and inclusivity through peaceful action.
By linking thousands of strangers to form a flower that epitomizes serenity, incorruptibility and non-violence, LOTUS LIVE connects us with the living legacy of the Summer of Love and the uplifting power of community togetherness and compassion for all. The lotus is one of the six flowers featured in Flower Power, the special exhibition on view from June 23 through October 1, 2017.
