THE DALI EXTENDS VAN GOGH ALIVE TO JUNE 2021
Responding to extraordinary ticket demand in this tumultuous time, the Dali Museum in St Petersberg, Florida has extended Van Gogh Alive, which provides an illuminating view into the life and work of one of the most iconic artists of all time. The experience will now remain on view at The Dalí through June 13, 2021.
“We are overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response to Van Gogh Alive from a wide range of audiences,” said Hank Hine, executive director of The Dalí. “The experience blends art and technology to educate visitors about Van Gogh’s development as an artist and the rhythms of his turbulent life. We are pleased to be able to extend its run. Such meaningful art experiences are particularly needed and important at this historic moment.”
“A fascinating new way to look at art,” “Life altering,” “filled my heart with joy,” “I could feel the artwork,” “mesmerizing,” “it brought me to tears” and “I was blown away,” are just some of the comments shared by viewers after exiting Van Gogh Alive at The Dalí.
The Dalí Museum, located in the heart of picturesque downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, is home to an unparalleled collection of over 2,400 Salvador Dalí works, including nearly 300 oil paintings, watercolors and drawings, as well as more than 2,100 prints, photographs, posters, textiles, sculptures and objets d’art. The Museum’s nonprofit mission, to care for and share its collection locally and internationally, is grounded by a commitment to education and sustained by a culture of philanthropy.
The Dalí is also recognized internationally by the Michelin Guide with a three-star rating; has been deemed “one of the top buildings to see in your lifetime” by AOL Travel News; and named one of the ten most interesting museums in the world by Architectural Digest. The building itself is a work of art, including a geodesic glass bubble, nicknamed The Enigma, featuring 1,062 triangular glass panels, a fitting tribute to Salvador Dalí’s legacy of innovation and transformation.
