ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - An exhibition about Walt Disney and surrealist artist Salvador Dali opens Jan. 23 at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. The show will document their friendship and their shared vision for taking art off the canvas and into the real world.
The show, called "Disney and Dali: Architects of the Imagination," will be on view through June 12. The show will include a short animated film that the two men collaborated on called "Destino."
The museum has also created a virtual reality experience called "Dreams of Dali," that will immerse visitors in a dreamy, surrealistic 3-D landscape inspired by Dali images.
Dali Museum director Hank Hine says Disney and Dali met in the 1940s when Dali was frequenting Hollywood.
