…is the Cafe Gala at the stunning Dali Museum in St. Petersburg. The family is enjoying the art, me the wi-fi and the view of his signature mustache below.
The artist and the museum made a cameo appearance in my book
“It helps to think like Salvador Dali, who once said, “At the age of
six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my
ambition has been growing steadily ever since.” The new Dali museum
in St. Petersburg, Florida, reflects that big thinking of the artist it honors.
While its architecture and waterfront location are stunning, even more so
is the design and technology to withstand the hurricanes that frequently
threaten the state. The glassed areas are made up of 900 triangular shaped
panels, each unique. The areas holding art have 18-inch concrete
walls with about 200 miles of reinforcing steel, and have been tested to
withstand a Category 5 hurricane.”
Come visit – no hurricanes in sight :)
