Perhaps the Most Interesting Salvador Dalí Exhibition Yet

In Uncategorized on December 22, 2009 at 11:02 pm

Courchevel, a French Alps haven for skiers, isn’t typically associated with the contemporary art world. However, the ski area has recently captivated the art scene and made international headlines. On December 5th, Courchevel took an innovative approach in exhibiting 14 sculptures by Spanish artist Salvador Dalí

Utilizing its reputation as one of the world’s most prestigious winter-resort destinations, Courchevel displayed an open air museum. The Stratton Foundation, the Dali Universe and Bartoux Galleries presented the exhibition which included seven monumental sculptures placed in the heart of Courchevel, and two of the artist’s masterpieces that can admired from the ski run (one of which is positioned at the top of Vizelle, 2,659 meters (8,723.8 feet) above sea-level).
