Surrealism invites us into a world where even the most seemingly insignificant occurrences of everyday life can be transformed in order to surprise, to be made strange, shocking or even disturbing. With this year’s exhibit, we invite the students to explore metamorphosis in a variety of media such as drawing, collage, watercolor, acrylic, digital photography, and mixed media. To help jumpstart the creative process, works from last years’ student exhibits are available on the Dalí Museum’s Flickr page.
