Salvador Dali – Gardens of the MindSelby Gardens, Sarasota
February 9, 2020 - July 26, 2020
Mind-bending floral works by surrealist master Salvador Dalí will form the foundation of a vibrant new exhibit and garden installation at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. Salvador Dalí: Gardens of the Mind will be on view exclusively at Selby Gardens from February 9 through July 26, 2020.
The lithographic series FlorDalí, on loan from The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, will anchor the exhibit. American photographer Clyde Butcher’s series Visions of Dalí’s Spain will also be on view, along with artifacts and photos that put the Dalís life, work and relationship with nature into context. Additional Dalí works will be on loan from Sarasota collector Keith D. Monda. These artworks and the Dalí-themed plant displays inspired by them will transform Selby Gardens into an evocation of Dalí’s vision.
Clyde will be giving a lecture on Friday, March 11 12:00-1:00 pm about his adventures in Spain photographing Dali’s homeland.
