The Zodiac Membership Committee is an all-volunteer group that supports the mission of The Dali 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 Dali for one month of the year. In exchange, patrons received a work of Dali’s produced during that same month. In the spirit of these forward-thinking patrons, The Dali’s Zodiac Membership Committee was formed in 1996.
Kirsten Ruginski Photography is honored to have been selected to participate in this prestigious event. During this year’s event, she’ll be showcasing original photographic works that encapsulate the spirit of Salvador Dali, symbols of life, and Dadaist concepts. Through her portraiture, hand embroidered mixed media pieces, and collage work, Kirsten Ruginski Photography plays with and pays homage to conceptual themes of Salvador Dali and his cohorts. Large scale original Gelatin Silver prints, embroidered photographs and more will be on display for viewers to relish.
