Join us for this special streaming installment of our Coffee with a Curator series, where Museum Staff or invited guests speak on a range of Dalí-inspired topics.
Wednesday, August 5, Curator of Education Peter Tush presents “Dalí and Catholicism.” Salvador Dalí was raised by a devout Catholic mother and an outspoken atheist father. Throughout his career, Dalí’s art vacillates between shocking blasphemous images and beloved devout images. Providing context to our current “Sacred Science” exhibit, this talk explores the radical shifts in Dalí’s depiction of religious subject matter, weighing it against paradoxical religious pronouncements he made throughout his career.
Visit our YouTube channel at 10:30am to discover the rich world of Dalí’s art.
Supported by the City of St. Petersburg Arts and Culture Grant, Café Gala, and The Dalí’s Members.
