Everyone is familiar with the surrealist Salvador Dali and his famous artworks, but not as many people know about his permanent exhibition in France called the Espace Dalí. The entire complex holds over three hundred original art pieces made by Dali himself. It’s located near the Place du Terte in Montmarte. Creations like the Space Elephant are housed in this museum along with several other Dalinian sculptures. Dali’s conquest for surrealism is a widespread conveyance of its curiosity through the different artistic media. He made use of everything from paperwork to painting to sculpture.

Within the museum, there are many chambers for the various types of visitors. There are workshops for children to learn about art, as well as temporary exhibitions at specific halls. The two galleries that make up the museum are the Galerie Dali and the Galerie Montmarte. The later is for several contemporary artists’ exhibition usage. The Espace Dalí is a wonderful place to visit for art enthusiasts, historians, professors, students and even families. It showcases the biggest group of artworks made by the master and is open to visitors young and old.

 

The Makati West Rotary Club‘s art exhibition continues this year with much enthusiasm as the group teams up with 27 of the countries leading sculptors including historics like sculptors Sajid Imao, Ramon Orlina and Impy Pilapil, as well as fast emerging talent from youths like the 22 year old modernist Kylo Chua and his father Seb Chua. It is a project by the club’s Culture Committee that will be spearheaded by project co-chairs National Artist I.P. Santos and Jun Alvendia.
