Join us for a special evening as we toast to Salvador Dalí and his muse, Gala. The evening kicks off with a toast, followed by a curated gallery experience in the permanent collection, where guests will learn more about Gala and her role in Dalí’s life and Surrealism. From the galleries, guests will proceed to the theater for a special screening of the award-winning short film produced by The Dalí, Breton and the Muse: A Midnight in Paris and all are invited to take part in a spirited Q&A following the film to offer thoughts and pose questions. Guests will also be treated to a visit by our resident Gala herself, Roxanne Fay.
After the event, we invite you to keep the surreal sojourn going by heading over to Cassis American Brasserie, the site where the short was filmed and our community partner for this event.

Breton and the Muse: A Midnight in Paris
Breton and the Muse: A Midnight in Paris is an original short film produced by The Dalí Museum as part of its special exhibition Midnight in Paris: Surrealism at the Crossroads, 1929. The film imagines a conversation between Salvador Dalí’s wife and muse, Gala Dalí, and the founder of Surrealism, André Breton, during a tumultuous time for the movement. Debating the nature and needs of art and artists, the two explore the conflicts between thought and sensuality, life and politics, and freedom and control. The original screenplay was written by Roxanne Fay, and stars Fay, alongside Ned Averill-Snell and Alan Mohney Jr.
