Dreams dwell in the domain of the fantastic; it takes a true creative to translate imagination into reality. Celebrated surrealist painter Salvador Dalí possessed the artistic prowess necessary to present the impossible, which the Columbia Museum of Art showcases in Salvador Dalí’s Fantastical Fairy Tales. A fusion of the literary and visual arts, the exhibit dives into the realm of the remarkable with Dalí’s whimsical representations of our favorite folktales. Thirty-six prints personify stories from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to Don Quixote to the works of Hans Christian Andersen, all in the surrealist style so characteristic of one of the most beloved artists of the twentieth century.
Salvador Dalí’s Fantastical Fairy Tales will be on display at the Columbia Museum of Art from March 11 to May 21. Located at 1515 Main St. in Columbia, the museum is open Tues–Fri, 11am–5pm, Sat, 10am–5pm, and Sun, Noon–5pm.
