Dali Dance of Time I

Salvador Dali fans! Vancouver will soon get up close and personal with Dali’s three-dimensional, large-scale bronze sculpture Dance of Time I to be unveiled in the heart of downtown at West Hastings and Hornby Streets.

May 6 at 2 pm is the official public unveiling of the seven-foot tall piece valued at $750,000. Our city will get to keep it through September.

The project’s titled Definitely Dali and is presented by Chali-Rosso Art Gallery. Public donations received (as well as a percentage of the gallery’s sales) will benefit Arts Umbrella, a non-profit arts education centre for young people located in Vancouver and Surrey, BC.

Dance of Time l is on loan from The Stratton Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of culture and the arts as well as owners of the world’s largest collection of Dali’s monumental sculptures.

The Dance of Time I sculpture was conceived in 1979 and the first cast was created in 1984.

This unique timepiece symbolizes the evolution of time; as Canada celebrates 150 years, the themes of time and memory are definitely on point for this project.

This is the first time that Dance of Time I will be displayed in Canada, and how lucky are we to have it here in Vancouver! Visit Chali-Rosso Gallery online for more info on the Definitely Dali project.
