DALI MIAMI, THE LARGEST BODY OF WORK CREATED BY
THE INTERNATIONALY ACCLAIMED SURREALIST ARTIST EVER
TO BE SHOWN IN SOUTH FLORIDA, TO BOW IN LIMITED 5-DAY
EXHIBIT MARCH 7 – 11 AT DESIGN DISTRICT’S MOORE BUILDING

MIAMI—Aficionados of the acclaimed and equally flamboyant surrealist artist Salvador Dali will, for the first time in South Florida, have an extraordinary opportunity to view an extensive collection of work, Wednesday, March 7 through Sunday, March 11 when DALI MIAMI will bring more than 200 works of his expansive artistic repertoire to the Design District’s iconic Moore Building.

DALI MIAMI is being produced by Michael Rosen, president and CEO of Colored Thumb, a driving force behind many of the area’s top art exhibits including Art Basel, Art Expo, and RedDot Fair. Curator of the show is Reed V. Horth President and curator of Robin Rile Fine Art, a specialist in Dali’s prodigious output.

Among these treasures will be Dali’s seminal bronze “Venus de Milo with Drawers” (1964- 114cm), the gouache original “Spring Rain” (1949), the full set of “Dix Recette d’Immoralité” (1973), the rare original intaglio “The Grasshopper Child” (1934), and his Daum glass masterpiece “Montre Molle” (1971), depicting his quintessential melting clock.

Taking his vision for a provocative exhibit one step further, Rosen has arranged for a continuous showing of the 1929 film, “Un Chien Andalou,” the iconic 17-minute French surrealist film in which Dali collaborated with friend and director Luis Buñuel. This graphic work explores the destructive elements of the psyche. The film clearly expresses pure surrealism and its relationship to the unconscious.

Rosen has also secured celebrity chef Adrianne Calvo for the opening night reception who will recreate recipes inspired by Dali’s Cook Book. Having recently opened “Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard and Wine Bar in Miami’s ?? section, Calvo appears Thursdays on NBC’s ‘South Florida Today.” Among other projects, Calvo is the author of a cookbook collection, “Maximum Flavor,” has for several years participated in the South Beach Food and Wine Festival and has been featured on The Food Network’s original series, “Chopped.”

 ~This year marks the 100th anniversary since the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre museum Miami, August 23, 2011 – Making its U.S. premiere, Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Art Gallery System brings to South Florida an extraordinary exhibition inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic portrait, the Mona Lisa. The exhibition, Mona Lisa Unveiled, will showcase various interpretations of the classic, created by artists around the world and dating from the 16th Century to modern day.    This exhibition is co-presented by City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and City of Margherita di Savoia (Italy) Mayor Gabriella Carlucci. An invitation-only opening reception will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, August 25, at MDC’s own transcendent work of art, the Freedom Tower. The working media is welcome.  On loan from the Museo Ideale Leonardo da Vinci in Florence, Italy, the exhibition was created and inspired by Alessandro Vezzosi, the museum’s director, and Agnese Sabato, president of the museum’s International Association. In Miami, the exhibition has been made possible with the support of the Consul General of Italy, Marco Rocca, and Gloria Porcella, director of the Galleria Ca’ d’Oro in Rome and Miami.
