The World Record Being Set At Asian Art Museum

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


The Asian Art Museum’s LOTUS LIVE is an effort to earn the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for the Largest human flower.  It’s part human, part artwork, part celebration of the museum’s Flower Power exhibition and the 50th anniversary of San Francisco’s Summer of Love.

We’d love for you to join Broke-Ass Stuart and 3,000 other awesome folks to become part of history! All participants receive FREE admission to the museum’s Flower Power exhibition, a souvenir event poster, a chance to win raffle prizes, and a commemorative downloadable photo of you and everyone else as the biggest human flower on earth!

Be part of history and and help form a beautiful lotus that can be seen from the sky. We need at least 3,000 community members who want to create something larger than themselves to break the record. The current GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Largest human flower featured 2,297 people at the Rochester Lilac Festival on May 9, 2014.

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 in the face of adversity, 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, a special exhibition on view at the Asian Art Museum from June 23 through October 1, 2017.
