Event Details

Join us for this installment of our Coffee with a Curator series where Museum Staff or invited guests speak on a range of Dalí-inspired topics.

In celebration of Black History Month and our upcoming special exhibition, Dalí & the Impressionists: Monet, Renoir, Degas & More, this month’s talk will feature Dr. Dallas Jackson as he explores how the Impressionist movement provided the foundation that many artists and himself use to develop their technical skills. He will explicate how artist like the Florida Highwaymen (1950s) captured their environments through “en plein air” painting and how the Florida Highwaymen prevailed through racial injustice to create venues for their artwork.

In 1982, Dr. Jackson began his early years of studying art at The Dalí Museum. Much like Salvador Dalí, Dr. Jackson’s earlier works were landscapes of his environment with color applications that provided aerial perspective. His recent series evolved to narratives of economic despair, migration and gentrification.

Location: The Dalí Museum’s Will Raymund Theater (registration required), with overflow seating available in the Raymond James Community Room or live on YouTube (link below).
