Through tours, lectures, performances and other cultural events, The Dalí Museum serves the community as a bustling cultural hub. Students of all ages and backgrounds are invited to delight in memorable Dalí-inspired experiences through the Museum’s cultural programming.

In addition to on-site programming, the Museum brings educational experiences directly to students through The Dalí on the “Fly” Art Mobile, student field trips and county and statewide Student Surrealist Art Exhibitions with associated curriculum resources. The Museum’s curators also welcome art scholars and publish catalogs and academic papers, including the Museum’s Avant-garde Studies annual online publication.

conserved 80 works on paper

Our awe-inspiring building houses and protects the preeminent collection of Dalí’s works. With our maturing collection, 80 works on paper were conserved, including the precious piece Study for Soft Watch Exploding (Salvador Dalí, 1954. Ink and pencil on paper). Our conservation repairs any existing damage while ensuring future damage is prevented, and each work had a variety of conservation methods applied to enhance their vitality.
