If you're in Atlanta you may have heard that the High Musuem of Art opened their brand new Salvador Dali exhibit this weekend to an overwhelming crowd of art lovers. I was one of the thousands to flocked to the museum on Saturday night to check out the surrealist works, but like many, I didn't get to see the actual exhibit! It's a long story but, after a couple hours of chaos and overcrowding, we gave up and decided to come back another time - so we could enjoy Dali in peace.
Nevertheless, with Dali on the brain, I came across the Salvador Dali Museum currently being built in St. Petersburg, Florida. I couldn't find the architect behind it, but they did a great job capturing the surrealism of Dali in a modern way. The building is said to reflect Dali's fascination with DNA; how cool!
The museum today...
