About The Zodiacs
The original Zodiac Group was created in France in 1932 and consisted of 12 patrons who each sponsored Salvador Dali for one month of the year. In exchange, patrons received a work Dali produced during that same month. In the spirit of these forward-thinking patrons, the Zodiac Membership Committee was formed at The Dali Museum in 1996.
