2016 Student Surrealist Art Exhibits: “Between Dream & Reality”
January 15 – August 28, 2016
“Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.” – Joseph Campbell
About this year’s exhibit:
The Surrealists lived within two worlds: the real and the dream, the conscious and the subconscious, the rational and the fantastical. With this year’s exhibit, we invite the students to create their own “surreality” by employing one or more of the following techniques:
Dislocation: Familiar objects are placed in an odd, bizarre, humorous, or unusual setting.
Juxtaposition: Two or more unrelated images are placed side by side; creating unexpected object combinations.
Transformation/Metamorphosis: Familiar images are changed in form, appearance, nature, condition, character or function to become unusual or strange.
Students explore a variety of media such as drawing, collage, watercolor, acrylic, digital photography, and mixed media.
Through this exhibit, the Dali Museum seeks to make a difference in the community by recognizing the role our art teachers play in their students’ development, and by encouraging students to continue exploring new ideas and creative thinking in all fields of education. This exhibit is separated into three separate shows; the Hillsborough County exhibit is shown Jan 15 – Mar 6, the Pinellas County exhibit is shown Mar 14 – May 8 and a statewide exhibit is shown May 16 – Aug 28.
Please see more information and entry details for each show in the tabs above.
