SALVADOR DALI BRONZE SCULPTURES – 2019

In May 2019, once again we will welcome a collection of spectacular Dali sculptures in Vancouver. Among them two large-scale bronze sculptures, to be placed on public display for the enjoyment of all locals and guests to the city. Before landing in the Port of Vancouver in early May, the sculptures will have traveled over 20,000 kilometres. After boarding the ship in Italy, they cross the Atlantic Ocean, go through the Panama Canal, graze Central America, skim past Mexico and the California Coastline and sail along the West Coast, to finally reach Vancouver. That’s a long way!

You are invited to be a part of this exciting project!

THE DEFINITELY DALÍ PROJECT
The Definitely Dali Project was first introduced to Vancouver in 2014, as a means to expose Vancouverites to exciting, historic, world class, fine art. The mandate of the Project is to ensure that new and future generations may continue to experience the magic of the great Spanish Surrealist master, Salvador Dali.
Viewing of the exhibition has always been presented with no charge to the public.

“ART IN THE CITY FOUNDATION”
As the Definitely Dali Project grows, so the scope of the responsibilities expands. This means the framework of the project has reached a new level which lead to the birth of the non-profit society, called F.I.N.E. Art in the City Foundation. The mandate of the Foundation is to exhibit world class art in cities’ urban areas, with special focus on internationally known artists. The mission is to create free public access to these works of art and to engage individuals and communities to learning more about fine art.
