re-visiting the dali museum

April 06 2014 012

it’s late

we just got home from a four hour car ride from the west coast of florida

st petersburg and bradenton to be exact

we drove out there to see dear friends who live in los angeles

on saturday, after checking into our hotel, we went to the dali museum

the first and last time we were there was here

Lily was still a tiny baby and in a way, the dali museum was a baby too

it is now a proper/mature/sophisticated museum in a new modern architectural space

even though the new space is beautiful inside and outside, something has to be said about the lack of intimacy one once felt in the old space

most of dali’s best works are still there, but to me, the old space suited them better

either way, i am glad we had the time to pop in (where there was also a warhol exhibit), and this time, Lily got to really appreciate it

happy monday friends

i hope you all had a wonderful weekend

ps- if you would like more info/pics on the museum, visit here

the way the glass was done reminded me of the background of dali’s painting “santiago el grande“. i’m sure the architect meant it to be that way

the museum is beautifully located right on the water. so once we were done visiting there, we took a walk around
