While most people’s thoughts of Salvador Dali go directly to images of melting clocks, the High Museum of Art’s “Dali: The Late Work” aims to change that, and we aim to get you into the exhibit for free.
Yes, the hottest ticket in town is burning a hole in our pocket—times four. Since the crowds haven’t died down since the initial fury, we are looking for two winners to each get a pair of tickets to see the installation any time you want. The exhibit runs through Jan. 9.
In our walk-through before the opening, we talked to the curator and the museum’s executive director about the show of work that Dali (photo) did in the latter half of his career.
The Surrealist master went in a new direction around 1940 and continued to create and collaborate on compelling works that fed—and fed from—a cult of his own celebrity until he died in 1989. Dali scholar and guest curator Elliott King says the exhibit is one of a kind because it includes rare paintings not seen in the U.S. in some 50 years.
More than 100 breathtaking pieces in 12,000 square feet of space are included in “The Late Work” alongside before-their-time photographs and video art projects.

Two lucky winners will be chosen at random to receive a pair of tickets each. The only rules of engagement are that we will close the contest on Wednesday, Sept. 8 at midnight and notify the winners with details at the e-mail address you provide beginning Sept. 9. We’ll give winners 24 hours to respond before selecting someone else. Again, the tickets are then good anytime during the exhibit through Jan. 9.
Dali fans should note that exhibit also inspires the High’s “Dali: A Passion for Film” series. The next installment, “Lights, Camera, Dali,” takes place Saturday, Sept. 11.
