BEST MUSEUM TRANSFORMATION: Salvador Dalí Museum

Hank Hine and Yann Weymouth, as director and architect, respectively, helmed this year’s most memorable art happening: the January debut of the stunning new Dalí Museum on St. Pete’s waterfront. With the support of many colleagues and collaborators, Hine and Weymouth realized the museum’s dream: a secure home for its priceless collection of art by famed surrealist Salvador Dalí and an extraordinary building that would make its namesake proud. thedali.org.
