MonaVie Distributor's Artwork Featured in Bouquets to Art
Bouquets to Art, one of the country's premier floral events, recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. The largest fundraiser held to benefit the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Bouquets to Art features 150 floral displays interpreting art from the de Young Museum collection. Among this year's participants was MonaVie distributor Emil Yanos of the American Institute of Floral Designers.
His display was an interpretation of "Coke Bottles" and "Gerbera Daisies" by pop-artist Andy Warhol. Emil created his "Gerbera Daisies" by attaching parts of several types of botanicals onto a wire frame. The daisies were then arranged with MonaVie bottles that duplicated Andy Warhol's repetitive style. Warhol used repetition of everyday items such as Coke bottles and Campbell's soup cans to diminish their significance, whereas Emil used the MonaVie bottles to establish its presence.
