Macy’s 62nd annual Flower Show “A Mosaic of Spain” is officially under way at the Union Square store at Stockton and O’Farrell streets. The Spanish-themed show, which continues through March 29, boasts food and home decor-related events set against the backdrop of thousands of blooms and citrus, olive and cypress trees.
A highlight this year is “A Portrait of Andalusia,” a fine art photography show of David George’s works from the 1960s and ’70s. The exhibit has five themes: Flamenco — the artistic expression of the soul of Gypsy culture; the annual Feria de Sevilla festival; the Rocio Pilgrimage, the Alcalá; and the art of bullfighting. Thirty of the vintage images — new to the public — are on display and for sale throughout the show.
On the celebrity front, Tyler Florence of Food Network fame will be at Macy’s Cellar at 6 p.m. Tuesday to demonstrate Spanish recipes. Starting at 4 p.m., customers who make a purchase of $50 or more will receive a VIP seat for the cooking demonstration and a cookbook.
Other Spanish cooking events round out the show. Visit www.macys.com for details.
