Salvador Dali

Tuesday, August 24, 2010



This past weekend Gavin and I ventured up to Atlanta for a pretty incredible exhibit. None other than Salvador Dali had some impressive paintings, sculpture, and jewelry on display. Gavin and I came very prepared. Our travel bag included two apples, some rice cakes, a very adorable children's book (don't ask), and mustaches of course. My lil sis and I have been cranking out these mustaches to sell at the Pepper Place craft farmers market here.

The Dali exhibit was striking, and the mustaches were a hit. We were a tad bit rushed, because we got there only an hour before the museum closed, but at least we saw everything. After the museum we ventured into little five points to grab a gyro at a small Turkish restaurant.

Le me just say there are some very interesting people in Atlanta, GA. My favorite had to be the older women dressed head to toe in a neon blue super woman outfit. I was told this is a regular habit for her.

Here are a few Salvador Dali inspired finds. If you are not familiar with Dali, just look up a few paintings of his online, they are truly spectacular.

In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.

  4. I've never been to a real art exhibit before. Its cool that you have been to one (:

    oh! and for one of my modules in University, I was required to write up essays on Salvador Dali's art pieces. One of them was Persistance of time, but I couldn't remember what was the other.
