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!
Find out which sculptures are on the way to Vancouver to be exhibited in 2019 by visiting our fundraiser site here.
You are invited to be a part of this exciting project!
This sculpture alone is an amazing perk for the city, but there is so much more!
By sponsoring a few kilometres of the sculptures’ epic journey from Europe, for as little as $10, you can help fulfill Dali’s dream and ensure that new generations continue to have unrestricted access to his original works. As a token of appreciation, we have some wonderful gifts for you. Check out how and when
As in the last two years, the gallery continues its tradition to arrange the annual Definitely Dali exhibition which features over 100 original works of art by the legendary Surrealist Master, including 20 gallery size bronze sculptures. On exhibition in the gallery, you also find an exceptional collection of works by Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Joan Miro, Henri Matisse, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
SPONSORS and PARTNERS
For the duration of the Definitely Dali Exhibition, public donations received, as well as a percentage of Chali-Rosso Art Gallery sales will go to Recovery Through Art Society, a non-profit organization, which mission is to support innovative mental health and addiction recovery and growth through art.
“Recreation’s purpose is not to kill time, but to make life; not to keep a person occupied, but to keep them refreshed; not to offer an escape from life, but to provide a discovery of life.”
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.
