Selby Gardens is pleased to announce 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, Florida, the exhibit will open February 9, 2020 and conclude on June 28, 2020. Salvador Dalí: Gardens of the Mind 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 photos that put the artist’s life, work, and relationship with nature into context, as well as photographs by renowned nature photographer Clyde Butcher of Dalí’s beloved Catalonia Spain.
