The Salvador Dali Museum based in St. Petersburg, Florida since 1982 continues to feature the best in fine art. As part of a new exhibit launching November 21, an interactive Van Gogh Alive exhibition will be available to view. “This exhibit is an immersive art installation. The exhibition features more than 3,000 Van Gogh images at enormous scale, viewed through high-definition projectors and synchronized to a powerful classical score.” Pre-sale tickets are now available and advance timed tickets are required for all visitors, so make sure to get yours in advance.
The museum structure itself “designed by architect Yann Weymouth of HOK, it combines the rational with the fantastical: a simple rectangle with 18-inch thick hurricane-proof walls out of which erupts a large free-form geodesic glass bubble known as the “enigma”. The Enigma, which is made up of 1,062 triangular pieces of glass, stands 75 feet at its tallest point, a twenty-first century homage to the dome that adorns Dalí’s museum in Spain.”
“Inside, the Museum houses another unique architectural feature – a helical staircase – recalling Dalí’s obsession with spirals and the double helical shape of the DNA molecule.”
No matter what you see at the Dali Museum it is sure to be a delight. For more information and details on available exhibitions, visit https://thedali.org/
