Selby Gardens Reveals "Salvador Dali: Gardens of the Mind" for 2020 Exhibition



Marie Selby Botanical Gardens has announced the fourth annual exhibition in the Jean & Alfred Goldstein Exhibition Series, Salvador Dalí: Gardens of the Mind. In collaboration with The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, the exhibit will open February 9, 2020 and conclude on June 30, 2020. Salvador DalÍ: Gardens of the Mind will include ten colorful photolithographs of flowers by Dalí along with works from American photographer Clyde Butcher’s series Visions of Dalí’s Spain. These artworks and the Dalí-themed plant displays inspired by them will transform Selby Gardens’ into an evocation of Dalí’s vision.

The Dalí exhibition highlights the artist’s repeated use of botanical imagery alongside a surreal display of tropical plants in Selby Gardens’ Tropical Conservatory and gardens. The lithographic series FlorDalí, on loan from The Dalí Museum, will be the centerpiece of the Museum of Botany & the Arts, along with artifacts and photos that put the artist’s life, work, and relationship with nature into context. Photos of Dalí’s beloved Catalonia by Butcher will showcase the extraordinary landscapes visible in several FlorDalí pieces and in much of Dalí’s art. Additional Dalí works will be on loan from Sarasota collector Keith D. Monda.
