Art: Young Surrealists

Saturday, January 5

Share on Nextdoor

The twisted spirit of Salvador Dalí lives on with the Student Surrealist Art Exhibit, an annual juried art show at the Salvador Dalí Museum that showcases the creativity of Pinellas County middle and high school students. The show includes more than 100 pieces of unsettling artworks, all inspired by the themes and techniques of the Surrealists. The students' work is full of dreamlike, sometimes nightmarish imagery and the media used ranges from digital photos to ceramic sculpture to mixed-media collages. Bleeding pianos, hands with faces and unraveling bodies are just a few of the images that are brought to us from the imaginations of the artists, all of whom aren't yet old enough to vote (or in some cases, to drive). On display through Jan. 21, 9:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Mon.-Wed. and Sat. (open until 8 p.m. Thurs. and 6:30 p.m. Fri.), noon-5:30 p.m. Sun., 1000 Third St. S., St. Petersburg, $15 adults/$13.50 seniors/$10 students, 727-823-3767,
