The Persistence of Memory: Salvador Dali and His Influence

On view March 4 through April 8

The Muckenthaler Cultural Center
1201 W. Malvern Avenue
Fullerton, California 92833

You know the name, you’ve seen the melting clocks and you remember the mustache. Salvador Dali (1904-1989) resides somewhere in the upper echelon of famous artists – the ones that need only one name. His dreamy, surreal paintings, sculptures, literary works and films pushed the boundaries of reality and explored the subconscious mind, echoing his outlandish public persona. Dali, a controversial, glittering, intense artist and theorist, was always one step ahead of everyone else. His artworks shocked and dazzled, twisted reality and found their way into the most impressive art collections around world. As Dali’s career progressed and his antics grew more outlandish, the quality and authenticity of his work came into question. This only fueled the public fascination with this mysterious and eccentric artist.

Despite the controversies and farcical behavior, Dali remains an immense influence on artists around the globe. Like so many other boundary-pushing visionaries, Dali’s visual manifestation of the subconscious has influenced the artworks, practice and aesthetics of generations of artists. The Muckenthaler Cultural Center is proud to host this original exhibit on one of the seminal artists of the 20th century and the artists that carry on his extraordinary spirit. On display to the public from March 4- April 8, 2021 in the Muckenthaler Galleries by appointment.

The Muckenthaler Cultural Center:
Walter and Adella Muckenthaler built the 18 room mansion in 1924 atop this hill in Fullerton and it served as the center of their citrus and nut farming business, as well as their family home, for more than four decades. In 1965, their son Harold Muckenthaler donated the mansion and the surrounding 8.5 acres to the city with the proviso that his childhood home be used to provide the public with experiences that stimulate creativity and imagination, while conserving the heritage and architecture of the estate. And in 1999, The Muckenthaler Mansion received designation by the National Registry of Historic places. Today, though the City of Fullerton maintains ownership of the property, it is managed by The Muckenthaler Cultural Center Foundation and its elected Board of Directors.

Brooklyn Streat Art reviews Leon Keer’s new book “Break Glass In Case of Lost Childhood”

Leon Keer’s new book “Break Glass In Case Of Lost Childhood” is given an early valentine by Brooklyn Street Art Loves You More Every Day with love for how the book manages to hold onto the magic of Keer’s anamorphic art.

Looking through the various venues he creates with and within, you can find an imagination that fully entreats you to join in the fun. Whether they are street paintings. floor paintings, anamorphic rooms for you to pose in, experiments in augmented reality brought alive on your phone, enormous land art paintings, or oddly shaped painted canvasses, Keer is not keeping the fun to himself. You are the welcomed and necessary ingredient that will supremely complete the scene. –
