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.
Kevin Damphouse is honored to have been selected to participate in this prestigious event. Damphouse designs jewelry, combining gemstone and precious metals, with his own metaphysical touch. As a practicing energy healer for over 15 years, he uses principles of Reiki, shamanism, and other healing modalities, informing his one-of-a-kind creations. Earth elements such as gemstones and metals have been used for centuries in energy work; Damphouse’s jewelry uses this ancient knowledge to aid in healing today. “We, as humans, connect with gemstones and natural elements on a soul level,” Damphouse explains, “and I believe this is the foundation of my calling as an artist.” His work is grounded with a spiritual intention: To contribute to the greater good of humanity through healing.
