Salvador Dali

Today (May 11) we celebrate The Most Illustrious Salvador Dali, born in Catalonia on this day in 1904. A leader of the Surrealism movement, his most famous piece is The Persistence of Memory, completed in 1931. Its melting clocks and human “monster” figure are used to recreate a dreamlike state for the viewer. Dali himself was a work of art, shown here sporting his iconic mustache and posing with his pet ocelot. Come look for surrealism in our gallery. Open Thursday through Saturday, noon until 4.
