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.
Featuring work from the following Thinkspace Family members:

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.
Thank you to everyone that joined us on our Instagram for the “opening” of Hilda Palafox’s Cuando Baja Le Marea (When The Tide Comes Down) and Kayla Mahaffey’s Deconstructed.
Please look over the below collection of links to enjoy both exhibits via an array of tours and photographs, as well as links to view the complete bodies of new works from both artists and interviews with each as well.
We can’t thank you all enough for your support during these rather uncertain times. We feel that art is more important now than ever, giving our souls and psyches a much-needed escape and providing the fuel for our minds to wander.
We can’t wait to see you all in our gallery again soon. Until then, stay inspired and stay strong.
