The Shape of Dreams exhibit is nearing the end of its run at The Dalí Museum, in St. Petersburg.
The exhibit explores 500 years of dream-inspired paintings from the 16th to 20th century, demonstrating how artists, throughout time, have depicted a profound yet universal phenomenon of the human experience — a dream.
It features a selection of art on loan from American institutions including the National Gallery of Art, Detroit Institute of Arts, The New Orleans Museum of Art, Saint Louis Art Museum, Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, Chicago Art Institute and Metropolitan Museum of Art. Several works from The Dalí’s permanent collection are placed in dialog with these works. The exhibition includes some reproductions to ensure visitors can experience the essential images to our curated story of dreams.
The exhibition is organized by The Dalí, and curated by Dr. Hank Hine, executive director of The Dalí, and runs until April 30.
