Registration Required: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
Once again the New Britain Museum of American will host us for a special guided tour of a limited-engagement exhibit by a major 20th-Century artist. The exhibit features prints from the last three decades of Dalí's life, selected from the collection of Frederick C. Ulbrich Jr.
Despite that limit, through their imagery the prints present the viewer with the cycle of Dalí’s life in print and his debt to history, inventive nature, and introspective reflection. Selections include individual prints and series such as Memories of Surrealism (1971), Alice in Wonderland (1975), and Hommage to Leonardo da Vinci (1975). They feature Dalí’s characteristic iconography of melting clocks, burning giraffes, butterflies, and eyes in their re-imaginations of literary classics, explorations of science and technology, and reflections upon a rich past.
The tour cost includes all-day admission to the museum, so you must be pre-registered if you wish to view the other exhibits or have lunch in the Museum's cafe prior to our tour. We will meet in the front lobby shortly before 2:00pm. If enough persons are interested we can adjourn to a local restaurant after the tour to continue our discussions. Cost of admission has been generously discounted via a grant from the University of Chicago Alumni Office.
