“The Persistence of Memory: Salvador Dali and His Influence” at Muckenthaler Cultural Center

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.

Featuring work from the following Thinkspace Family members:
Anthony Clarkson
Anthony Solano
Curiot
Dan Lydersen
Hilda Palafox (aka Poni)
Ian Robertson-Salt
Koz Dos
Nicola Caredda
Spenser Little
Wiley Wallace

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.

Pow! Wow! Antelope Valley 2020

Pow! Wow! Antelope Valley returned for its third year in Lancaster, California this past month. From September 5th through September 12th a dozen talented artists added to the 31 murals and installations, created during 2016 and 2019 editions of the festival, which can be discovered around the city.

In blistering heat and under a smoky sky, these twelve amazing artists: Allison Bamcat, Carlos Mendoza, Carlos Ramirez, Casey Weldon, Chloe Becky, Gustavo Rimada, Huntz Liu, Kim Sielbeck, Manuel Zamudio, MJ Lindo, Spenser Little, and Victoria Cassinova; brought their vision to life and infused the streets of Lancaster with their distinct creative voices.

For the safety of the artists and the general public and in compliance with the Los Angeles County Health Department’s COVID-19 protocols, no public events were held during POW!WOW! AV. While the expansion of the Antelope Valley’s outdoor museum is exciting and visiting the murals offer some escape for all that have been trapped indoors these past several months, we ask that you wear a mask while touring the new murals.

The Lancaster Museum of Art and History is dedicated to strengthening awareness, enhancing accessibility and igniting the appreciation of art, history and culture in the Antelope Valley through dynamic exhibitions, innovative educational programs, creative community engagement and a vibrant collection that celebrates the richness of the region.

Pow! Wow! Antelope Valley is made possible due to the support and sponsorship of the Lancaster Museum of Art and History and Thinkspace Projects from Los Angeles, California.

Special thanks to the City of Lancaster, Destination Lancaster, The BLVD Association, Signs & Designs, and all who help bring POW! WOW! AV to life.
