Salvador Dali Museum & Tropical Luncheon Cruise
Take a “Selfie” with Dali!
Upon arrival in Madiera Beach we’ll board the Calypso Breeze for a 1 1/2 hour cruise of the waters on Florida’s Gulf Coast. On board, you’ll enjoy a delicious tropical island style buffet with complimentary beer, wine, rum punch or soda.
Next we off to the extraordinary and unique Salvador Dali Museum. The following is a write up that appeared on Smithsonian.com about the exhibit: “Salvador Dali wasn't exactly modest. And he’ll tell you so, too, face to face at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. Here, the Spanish surrealist is alive and well, ready to talk to you in person about his art and his processes. Well, sort of. This Dali is a reanimated version, brought to life through the magic of artificial intelligence. Three interactive video panels showing a life-size Dali, standing 5'8" tall, located throughout the museum comprise the exhibit. (including Dali's paintings and sketches, photographs, sculptural objects, two tech-enhanced paintings allowing visitors to put themselves inside the image, and a virtual reality experience of walking through Dali's 1934 painting "Archeological Reminiscence of Millet's Angelus”). Each one offers a different experience when you push a doorbell on the panel to get Dali’s attention.” Lunch will be on your own in the on-site cafe.
