    In honor of the 50th anniversary of San Francisco’s Summer of Love, the Asian Art Museum showcases the expressive power of flowers in the arts and cultures of Asia. Flower Power focuses on six celebrated flowers—lotus, plum blossom, cherry blossom, chrysanthemum, tulip and rose—and the messages they convey. What do these flowers symbolize? How have flowers come to carry these meanings? Join Flower Power curator Dany Chan for an in-depth look at these questions and the making of the exhibition.
