Petals to the Metal Gives Back

Summer is in BLOOM at AY.

Petals to the Metal is in full swing. From our beautiful, large scale, fresh flower installations to our live music performances on hand-painted pianos, AY is alive with excitement. Come check it out for yourself from now until 8/26 and help us give back!

Many in the music community have experienced challenges due to cancellations of gigs, concerts and other engagements. We are so fortunate to have found such wonderful artists to partner with for our Petals to the Metal performance series, and for the rest of this campaign we want to say thank you and show our support to these wonderful artists.

BUT we need your help.

VISIT our Petals to the Metal floral installations OR evening performances over the next two weeks
SHARE a photo with us on Instagram @ArsenalYards
AND for every post we will donate an additional $5 to each performance group.

You can find the flower installations located near GAP, Shake Shack and City Works. For the upcoming performance schedule, please visit our Events Calendar.

Nicole Dobberpuhl
