Historic High exhibit closes with weekend-long Dali Til Dawn celebration

223
If you’re like most of us, you’ve been meaning to drop by the High Museum to take in the unprecedented collection of pop art granddaddy Salvador Dali‘s work.
On its final weekend in Atlanta, the High Museum is making it easier than ever to view “Dali: The Late Work” before it closes Sunday.
 
On Saturday, starting at 10 a.m., art aficionados and pop culture addicts can view the exhibition via Dali Til Dawn when the High stays open around the clock for 31 hours.
 
Night owls will score deep discounts too. The Woodruff Arts Center parking garage  (which normally requires you to take out a second mortgage for its services) is free from midnight to 6 a.m. Sunday) and High admission from midnight to 9 a.m. is a measly $5.
 
On Saturday night from 8 to 10 p.m. Q100’s Melissa Carter will host the festivities.
 
And on Sunday morning at 1, 3 and 5 a.m. the exhibition’s nattily attired curator himself Elliott King will be conducting the Insomniac Tour for patrons. To buy tickets in advance online, go to the High’s Dali Til Dawn webpage
 
Our recommendation? Pick up a copy of the exhibit’s official catalog published for the High by Yale University Press co-authored by King. It will serve as grand reminder of the city’s ground-breaking show and it will class up any coffee table.
