Dang! I didn’t even know there was a Dali museum in St. Petersburg, Florida – and now they have a big new space. It opens on 1-11-11, great numbers for a grand opening! If you’re nearby or want to go, below is the info. Great looking building, not to mention it’s chock full of the surreal master’s art – I am marking it down for my next visit to Florida!
1.11.11 Grand Opening Procession, Ribbon Cutting & Festival
The public is invited to view a surreal procession departing from the current museum (located at 1000 Third Street South in St. Petersburg) at 9:30am and concluding at the new museum (located eight blocks north at One Dali Blvd.). Entertainment, a dedication program with S.A.R. la Infanta Cristina of Spain, Duchess of Palma de Mallorca, and a ribbon cutting ceremony with Spanish Royalty presiding — starting at 11:00 a.m. — will mark the beginning of a new era for the Dalí at its new location. The festivities will continue until 3 p.m.
