Sueños de Dalí 2021

October 23, 2021 @ 8:00pm 11:00pm

We cordially invite you to Sueños de Dalí –  the most surreal rendezvous of the yearJoin us as our spectacular building and gardens transform into an experience like no other, with music, themed open bars, curated cocktails and tantalizing treats. Sueños de Dalí is an annual fundraiser hosted by The Dalí, with the support of The Guild and event co-chairs Jackie Zumba and Brian Kins. All proceeds support the Museum’s vital mission as a nonprofit arts and education organization. 

This year’s event draws inspiration from our special exhibition, The Woman Who Broke Boundaries: Photographer Lee Miller. The theme, The Art of Fashion, celebrates Miller’s time as an iconic Vogue model and a Surrealist muse, to her reinvention into an accomplished and outstanding commercial fashion photographer. Guests are encouraged to dress in attire inspired by their own take on Surreal High Fashion.

This event will be held both indoors and outside (weather permitting); guests are required to wear a mask when indoors and not eating/drinking.
