Salvador Dali is one of my favorite artists. My art teacher at Holy Cross High School, Mr. Marseglia, turned me onto Dali's work during my Sophomore year. I was immediately drawn to Dali's surrealist paintings and works of art. His use of warped perspectives and incredible color variations just really struck a chord with me. I was lucky enough to attend an exhibition of Dali's Optical Illusions at Hartford's Wadsworth Atheneum in 2000. The photo of Dali's 'The Persistence of Memory' you see above is a photo that I snapped at MOMA in NYC last year.

If you enjoy Dali's work as much as I do, you should make your way to the New Britain Museum of American Art to check out their new exhibit 'Cycle of Life in Print: Salvador Dali'. It opened on March 4, 2016, and runs until June 26, 2016. The Museum itself is a treasure, it's an absolutely beautiful facility. My wife is a docent at NBMAA, and we'll be heading up to check it out very soon. The New Britain Museum of American Art is located at 56 Lexington Street, and you can check out their website for hours, exhibits, and directions by clicking HERE
