Dalí Comes to El Museo Latino
March 31st, 2021
Omaha, NE—El Museo Latino will open a special exhibition this Friday, Salvador Dalí’s, Stairway to Heaven. The collection of works is a comparative study of two of the artist’s most celebrated portfolios, his book illustrations of Lautremont’s Les Chants de Maldoror and Dante’s The Divine Comedy. Magdalena García, Founder and Executive Director of El Museo Latino.
Dalí’s best known work is perhaps “The Persistence of Memory”—a depiction of melting pocket watches. That piece is oil on canvas, but Stairway to Heaven features etchings and watercolors. The span of works presented shows the development of the artist’s surrealist style.
In conjunction with Stairway to Heaven El Museo Latino will host public programs, including a panel discussion with UNO professors Adrian Duran and Alexandra Cardon.
El Museo Latino, located at 4701 S 25th Street, will open Salvador Dalí’s Stairway to Heaven this Friday, April 2. The exhibition will be on view through August 14, Wednesdays through Saturdays. Timed ticket reservations are required due to COVID-19. For more information, go to ElMuseoLatino.org.
