Discover Disney and Dalí: Architects of the Imagination

Walt Disney inspired children around the world to explore the world around him. And, now The Walt Disney Family Museum and The Dalí Museum are presenting an extraordinary exhibition; Disney and Dalí: Architects of the Imagination. Featuring original paintings, story sketches, and conceptual artwork. As well as correspondences, archival film, photographs, and audio, this exhibit help's tell the story of two vastly different icons who were drawn to each other through their collaboration on the animated short Destino, their unique personalities, and their enduring friendship.

Both Disney and Dalí’s boyhood imaginations encouraged their lives, careers, and legacies to be paralleled on a profound level. Through the exhibit we gain a deeper understanding of the lives and artistic prominence of the Surrealist and the dreamer. It's amazing how alike these two innovators were in their never-ending quest to broaden the horizons of art and blur the line between reality and dreams.

For those visiting or living in Florida, The Dalí Museum is located at One Dali Blvd in St. Petersburg, and is just 30 minutes from the Tampa International Airport. Throughout the year, The Dalí Museum host special events that are Free with museum admission for families like the Storytime for Families features selected books from The Dali Museum library and store. Another popular event is Dillydally with Dali in which children can discover the creative world of Dali through games, puzzles and arts and crafts activities.

They features Films Of The Month that are Free with museum admission.
