Check out Dali’s work inspired by his hometown in Spain.
Spring is in the air, and there’s no better place to spend it than Denver’s very own Botanic Gardens. Right now, they’ve got a special exhibit displaying Salvador Dali’s stunning and surreal nature photos. You can check out the display all the way through summer until August 22nd.
The Salvador Dali Exhibit, in collaboration with the Salvador Dali museum in Florida, is still holding its exhibit in the gardens through summer. The museum loaned the gardens colorful lithographs rarely seen before of Dali’s work. The two prints, FlorDalí and Surrealist Flowers are artworks that show Dali’s fascination with his home town in Catalonia, Spain. The nature from Catalonia is in contrast with his normal surrealist style, and there are actually 40 of these prints to be seen in the gardens.
There are two different types of tours–either curator-led or docent-led–though both offer hidden secrets, cool facts, and insider knowledge about the artwork.
On April 15th, there will be a live online webinar with a curator from the Dali museum in St. Petersburg, Florida where he will teach participants about the native floral and fauna along Spain’s wild coast and their influence on Dali’s work. You can sign up online.
Check out their website here for time slots and tickets at $15 that combines with a regular ticketed entry. The gallery is open daily from 10am to 7pm.
