Whether you can attend in person or by Internet, this is a really cool event that you don’t want to miss.
Marvels of Illusion at the waterfront Dali Museum in St Petersburg, Florida, presents a sensational optical and intellectual experience while delving into the world of double images and illusions. This special exhibition showcases a variety of Dali paintings, prints and sculpture. It includes a very special work from the 16th Century from the School of Arcimboldo, on loan from the Ringling Museum. To help you experience this one of a kind exhibit, there is a great deal of explanatory material as well. A centerpiece of the Marvels of Illusion exhibit is an interactive installation titled “Gala Contemplating You” which places visitors inside one of Dali’s most famous paintings. The installation is inspired by Dali’s 1976 painting “Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea Which at Twenty Meters Becomes the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln (Homage to Rothko),” which proved that 121 pixels could identify a particular human face. A corresponding web application allows virtual visitors from around the globe to submit their photos and become part of the experience as well. The exhibit promises to entertain and fascinate people of all ages – visitors will not only come to the Museum, they will become part of it. I just love the Dali Museum!
