Ben and his adoring sister Hailey. Matt was predeceased by a sister Ali. Matt was also predeceased by his paternal grandparents Alfred and Rosemary Abati and survived by his maternal grandparents Robert and Elaine Florio and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

175 different irises planted at Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum - Las Cruces Sun-News
New Mexico’s agricultural communities.”
Working in conjunction with Farm & Ranch Museum landscaper Alfredo Hernandez and others on the staff, soil was brought in for the flowers and a watering system was installed. Members of the local iris society have worked for days preparing the beds and planting the flowers.
Farm & Ranch is one of six locations in Las Cruces the irises are being planted in preparation for the national convention. Irises have been sent to Las Cruces from as far away as Massachusetts and Washington.
“There’s such a huge variety and with so many colors and patterns,” said Scarlett Ayers, co-chair for the national show and regional vice-president. “They should begin blooming in mid-March.”
The museum began planning the project with Howie Dash, president of the Mesilla Valley Iris Society, last spring when he approached the museum about providing a location for some of the plants. The group worked with Visit Las Cruces, the city’s convention and visitors bureau, to bring the convention to Las Cruces.
Each plant at the museum is labeled with the name of the flower and the name of the hybridizer.

Art Alive brings flowers, cars and interactive workshops to SDMA - pacificsandiego.com
McGarigle, founder of Floral Art, was tapped as the Rotunda Designer. She will create a large-scale floral wonderland themed after the museum’s Alfred Eisenstaedt: Life and Legacy photography exhibition.Bloom Bash will also feature interactive art installations including works by Monty Montgomery, a local San Diego muralist, and Dominic Fontana, a San Francisco-based artist known for his large scale pieces with a most interesting and curious medium: Tape. For this event, Fontana was teamed up with BMW, after talking with Sarah Grossman, the Manager of Special Events and Corporate Relations, about the possibilities of working his medium on a car. As he noted, “the stars happened to be aligned this time.”Fontana, the founder of Taped Metal Canvas, whose eye-catching work has previously been displayed at KAABOO Del Mar, labored for 26 hours across three days on the project. But the work on the BMW I8 didn’t come easy. Despite having complete freedom with artistic design, Fontana noted he had to release any preconceived ideas he had planned for the project.

“I was a little nervous with the car design that it wasn’t going to work,” he said, “and sure enough, my (original) design went out the window, and I had to let the car and its curves put the design on the car.”The inspiration for his design ultimately wove that spontaneity together with another piece he had previously constructed, which will hang in the background of the car display. As Fontana described it, “it...
