WAG Extends Dali Until February 22, 2015.
The WAG is pleased to announce the holdover of Dalí Up Close and Masterworks from the Beaverbrook Art Gallery to February 22, 2015. Originally scheduled to close on January 31, the two exhibitions have been extended due to popular demand. The Beaverbrook show is an exceptional collection of paintings by the likes of Gainsborough, Turner, Carr, and Freud. A highlight is Dalí's monumental Santiago El Grande, which inspired parallel show Dalí Up Close, featuring major paintings, watercolours, drawings, jewellery, and sculpture by surreal master Dalí, for the first time in Winnipeg. Admission to the shows includes a free audio tour with 35 stops in French and English.
Pick up your FREE audio tour for Dalí and Beaverbrook, included in the price of admission. Available in English and French. Created in partnership with the Beaverbrook Art Gallery and made possible by the generosity of the Mauro Family Foundation.
