#336 – Dalí ‘Til Dawn at the High Museum of Art – Say a Final Farewell This Weekend, January 8-9, 2011
If you haven’t had a chance to catch the Salvador Dalí exhibit at the High Museum of Art yet, this weekend is your final — and perhaps coolest — chance!
This amazing exhibit of Dalí’s work after 1940 has been shown solely at High Museum here in Atlanta since August and has enjoyed much acclaim. Now as we enter the final weekend, 31 hours remain to be fascinated and Salvador Dalí.
Beginning at 10:00 AM on Saturday, January 8, 2011, the festivities continue through until 4:00 PM on Sunday, January 9, 2011. With special guests and performances by WonderRoot, as well as Atlanta’s home grown circus, The Imperial Opa, and musical performances by Klezmer Local 42 led by Dan Horowitz of Athens favorites, Five-Eight — all on Saturday. And then on Sunday, ending with the Morningside Chamber Musicians and special kids’ activities.
The most exciting part is the overnight hours. There is a special $5.00 entry fee from midnight until 9:00 AM (and FREE parking from midnight until 6:00 AM) – an amazing opportunity to see the exhibit and say goodbye to Dalí at a low-low price and a rare chance to prowl the museum after dark! Special Insomniac Tours with exhibition curator Elliott King will take place 1:00 AM, 3:00 AM and 5:00 AM to give visitors a better insight into Dalí and his work.
The exhibit is free with museum admission and free for members. Daytime tickets — 10:00 AM until 11:59 PM on Saturday, January 8, and 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM on Sunday, January 9 — are $18.00 for adults, $11:00 for children ages 6-17, $15.00 for seniors ages 65+, and $15.00 for students with a valid ID. Tickets for midnight through 9:00 AM are $5.00. Tickets are available for entry times in half-hour increments online – click here to purchase tickets (some time slots have already sold out).
