The wonderful, weird and wacky subjects of Salvador Dali's imagination come to life in Dali's Zoo of Exceptionally Peculiar Creatures, a traveling exhibition making its first stop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. In an effort to interest children in the fine arts and introduce them to abstract thinking, Dali's Zoo provides a playful platform encouraging observation and imagination through the familiarity of a zoo-like setting. Overlapping fun, fictional facts with authentic artistic information, the exhibit features a curated selection of Dali's animal-themed sculptures and paintings, grouped into displays based on their "unnatural habitats." Actors posting as animal handlers will be present periodically in each section of the exhibit, providing further information about the animals and supporting the story. Guests will enjoy this themed twist on the traditional museum exhibit as they use their imagination alongside the product of Dali's own.
