Dalí Alive explores how the artist continually reinvented himself his place, his person, his family and his very human transience to overcome obstacles. His personal and artistic moments of reinvention are shared through chronological segments highlighting his childhood in Spain, his introduction to surrealist circles in Paris, his refuge in America during WWII, his return to Spain and his enduring cultural impact still recognized today.
We could not be more excited to collaborate with the esteemed Dalí Museum to create Dalí Alive and bring this surreal experience to audiences across the U.S., said Bruce Peterson, Executive Chairman and Founder of Grande Experiences.

In my opinion, if Salvador Dalí were alive today, he would be creating in this exciting new age digital medium.
