Dali Museum to Host Exhibit about Walt Disney and Salvador Dali

If you're headed to St. Petersburg, Florida anytime soon and you are a fan of Walt Disney you'll want to stop by the Dali Museum to check out a new exhibit. Starting this weekend (January 23) the museum is hosting an exhibition about Walt Disney and Salvador Dali.

The exhibit, Disney and Dali: Architects of Imagination, documents the friendship between Disney and Dali, including their vision for bringing art into the real world, not just on a canvas. Visitors will also have a chance to see a short animated film by Disney and Dali called Destino.

Disney and Dali met in the 1940s when Dali was a frequent visitor to Hollywood, according to museum director Hank Hine.

The Disney and Dali exhibition will be on display through June 12 so there's plenty of time to plan a trip. You can find more information on the exhibit here.

Will you make plans to visit the exhibit in Florida? Let us know in the comments.

I saw Destino on a cruise once, and it was really neat. I would love to see this exhibit.
