THE ARLINGTON MUSEUM OF ART TO HOST SALVADOR DALI EXHIBIT

Oct 2, 2017

Arlington, TX – The Arlington Museum of Art proudly announces its winter blockbuster exhibit, Visions of Eternity, featuring 101 woodcut watercolor prints by the renowned Spanish artist, Salvador Dali. The exhibit will be on display from October 21, 2017 through January 21, 2018. An opening reception for exhibit sponsors, museum members, and special guests will be held Friday, October 20, 2017 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. 

Dali was always much more than one of Surrealism’s leading figures. A virtuoso, gifted with dazzling skills and technique, Dali was a painter, designer, sculptor, writer and set designer as well as a master engraver who could produce equally outstanding work in dry point, etching, woodcut or lithography. This exhibition features Dali’s full series of Dante’s The Divine Comedy. 

Chris Hightower, Executive Director, said, “Salvador Dali is a household name whose images are fantastical and unusual. Pairing his imagery to Dante’s Divine Comedy, was true genius. Most people are familiar with Inferno, but they will find Purgatorio and Paradiso equally interesting in this exhibit.” 

This exhibition was developed by Italian Entertainment Network and distributed by Exhibits Development Group. It was funded in part by a grant from the Arlington Cultural Tourism Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, United Service Association for Health Care Foundation and Purchasing Solutions International.
