For the duration of the Salvador Dali Exhibition by Chali-Rosso Gallery, with presenting sponsor Lao Feng Xiang, public donations received, as well as a percentage of Chali-Rosso Gallery sales will go to Arts Umbrella, a not-for-profit arts education centre located in Vancouver and Surrey, BC.
“I am excited to be able to share these magnificent Dali sculptures with Vancouverites and visitors from around the world,” said Susanna Strem, Owner and Curator of Chali-Rosso Art Gallery. “The Salvador Dali sculpture collection has been exhibited in major museums, city plazas and outside art galleries all over the world such as Paris, New York and Beiing, and this will be the first time that the Surrealist Piano sculpture will be publically displayed anywhere in Canada, and Vancouver’s inaugural unveiling of the Women Aflame sculpture will be in the heart of downtown at West Hastings and Hornby Street.”
