This annual event invites members of The Dalí Museum to meet with and view work by local artists and artisans. Each of the 12 Zodiac committee members has selected an artist to showcase.
The Museum Store will also be open and offering members a special 25% discount on Store merchandise. Tickets for the event are $18 and available to Dalí Museum members & their guests on TheDali.org.
The Zodiac Membership Committee is an all-volunteer group that supports the mission of The Dalí Museum by building meaningful relationships with members, fostering new interest in the membership program, and helping to strengthen ties between the Museum, its members and the arts community. The original Zodiac Group was created in France in 1932 and consisted of 12 patrons who each sponsored Salvador Dalí for one month of the year. In exchange, patrons received a work of Dalí’s produced during that same month. In the spirit of these forward-thinking patrons, The Dalí’s Zodiac Membership Committee was formed in 1996.
Lina Teixeira is honored to have been selected to participate in this prestigious event. During this year’s event she will have live models featuring wearable art and uncommon couture. One of her models will be wearing a piece specially designed for this event. She will also be showcasing her one of a kind hand painted shoes. Lina has a passion for turning the everyday mundane into beautiful works of wearable art. Her art is featured in her downtown Clearwater studio, Galleria Clearwater at 617 Cleveland St.
