DalÃ Comes to El Museo Latino
March 31st, 2021
Omaha, NEâ€”El Museo Latino will open a special exhibition this Friday, Salvador DalÃâ€™s, Stairway to Heaven. The collection of works is a comparative study of two of the artistâ€™s most celebrated portfolios, his book illustrations of Lautremontâ€™s Les Chants de Maldoror and Danteâ€™s The Divine Comedy. Magdalena GarcÃa, Founder and Executive Director of El Museo Latino.
DalÃâ€™s best known work is perhaps â€œThe Persistence of Memoryâ€â€”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 artistâ€™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 DalÃâ€™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.
