{Georgia} High

No matter where we travel, McDreamy and I always check the local art museum schedules to see what exhibit is currently on display, so you can just paint your own image of how excited we both were when we discovered Salvador Dalí's late works would be on display at the High Museum of Art.  

It goes without question that this incredibly talented man was a pure genius!  My mind is still trying to process the surreal 'worlds' I gazed upon for as long as I possibly could, and actually, my brain hurts from just trying to fathom the overall brilliance of Dalí.  Yes, my friends, this 'brain pain' equates to a great exhibit of one of the world's brightest individuals.

Thank you High Museum for adding such a bonus to our Georgia visit ~

  3. You lucky person. I love Dali. He comes to you in layers, does he not? And that is true of all great art. I do wish more of these types of exhibits came to Australia. The tyranny of distance (and insurance). ! xo

  7. Yes, I'd say that trip was a bonus. The museum looks pretty spectacular. Did you know that Dali called the town of Perpignan (where I was born) the center of the universe? I grew up knowing this little random factoid. It's my personal connection to his crazy genius. =)
