@ the Museum: The Salvador Dali Museum

@ the Museum: The Salvador Dali Museum

September 18, 2015

Hello, Good Morning, and Happy Friday! @ the Museum returns with the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. Opened on March 7, 1982, this museum is dedicated to the works of the surrealist artist and has the largest collection of his work’s outside Europe. Here are a few things going on at the Dali…..

from the website:

A Century of Salvador – Discover the life and legend of Salvador Dali, and get to know the people, places and events that transformed this Spanish son into a surrealist sensation.

Escher At the Dali / August 22, 2015 – January 3, 2016 – This special exhibition highlights M.C. Escher, a renowned artist, whose visual illusions puzzle and delight audiences worldwide, and is best known for his “impossible constructions” and use of tessellation. The robust exhibit features 135 works covering Escher’s entire artistic career, including an array of his most recognizable works such as “Drawing Hands,” “Reptiles” and “Waterfall” alongside rarely exhibited early drawings of family members, panoramas of exotic landscapes and historic architecture of Italy and Spain, original preparatory sketches, mezzotints and more.

Exhibit Features

Admission: The Escher exhibit is included in the price of admission.

Audio Guides: FREE audio guides developed for the Escher exhibit are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Film: Complimentary one-hour documentary about the life and works of M. C. Escher is offered daily (Mon-Sat) in the Museum’s theater at the following times: 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30 pm, 2:30 pm, 3:30 pm and 4:30pm. Admission not required.

Educational Program Events: We are offering a host of relevant programs for the Escher exhibit covering a wide range of topics to engage the mind and reflect the human experience. For an active list of upcoming lectures, films and other special programs, please visit our Calendar of Events.

Members: FREE, unlimited admission to the Escher exhibit. Join Today!

Private Tours: We offer private tours for the Escher exhibit—with advanced reservations—in English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, and Italian. To learn more or to schedule your tour, please contact groups@thedali.org.

Photography: Photography in the Escher exhibit is not permitted; non-flash photography is permitted in the permanent collection gallery.

 

Suenos de Dali – Consider for a moment the mystery and enigmatic atmosphere of an enchanted forest. Just the word “enchanted” practically says it all. It’s a place of bewitching delight and hypnotizing whimsy. Of things unusual and ordinarily unseen. Of lush landscape, towering canopies and surreal experiences built by pure imagination and a fair share of magic.

For more information about the 2015 Suenos de Dali or to discuss sponsorship opportunities, please contact Aislinn Stone, Foundation and Donor Relations Manager, at 727.623.4726 or astone@thedali.org.
