Grande Experiences, world leaders in multi-sensory art and culture experiences, in cooperation with The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, is proud to announce the world premiere of DALÍ ALIVE. The Grand Opening of their newest permanent digital art gallery, THE LUME Colorado, is located at Stanley Marketplace (2501 Dallas Street, Aurora, CO 80010).
From the creators and producers of VAN GOGH ALIVE – the most visited multi-sensory experience in the world – DALÍ ALIVE will further redefine the way U.S. audiences connect with art and culture, engaging and inspiring guests to explore the life, art and triumphant accomplishments of Salvador Dalí. A powerful and vibrant symphony of light, color, captivating imagery, stirring soundscapes, and evocative aromas take you out of your world and immerse you inside the surreal visions synonymous with the renowned artist.
Showcasing both Dalí’s challenges and triumphs, the breath-taking production dynamically animates the works of the incomparable artist, providing visitors with the sensation of stepping into the life of Salvador Dalí himself and feeling the redemptive power of his imagination. Displayed over 13,000 square feet, including a full coverage, multi-sensory projection gallery featuring spatial audio technology, DALÍ ALIVE explores how the artist continually reinvented himself – his place, his person, his family, and his very human transience – to overcome obstacles. His personal and artistic moments of reinvention are shared through chronological segments highlighting his early, formative years in Spain, his introduction to Surrealist circles, his influential time in America and the enduring cultural impact still recognized globally today.
“We could not be more excited to collaborate with the esteemed Dalí Museum to create
DALÍ ALIVE and bring the World Premiere to the people of Colorado,” said Bruce Peterson, Executive Chairman and Founder of Grande Experiences. “Visitors will enjoy the unique opportunity to dive deep into the imaginative world of Salvador Dalí and immerse themselves in his beautiful, iconic, and captivating art as we bring it to life. In my opinion, if Salvador Dalí were alive today, he would be creating art in this exciting new age digital medium.”
The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, which holds an unparalleled collection of Salvador Dalí works, collaborated closely with Grande Experiences to develop DALÍ ALIVE. “The Dalí’s mission is to preserve and share Salvador Dalí’s celebrated artistic legacy,” said Dalí Museum Executive Director, Dr. Hank Hine. “Our partnership with Grande Experiences allows us to amplify his transformative story to a wider audience – beyond those that visit The Dalí in St. Petersburg – providing an opportunity to appreciate the legendary artist and his wide-ranging impact through this remarkable and theatrical digital display.”
THE LUME Colorado is Grande Experiences’ newest permanent digital art gallery and fourth worldwide. “VAN GOGH ALIVE at Stanley Marketplace was incredibly popular among Colorado residents and visitors alike last summer. We are honored to be the permanent location for THE LUME Colorado,” said Mark Shaker, co-founder and co-owner of Stanley Marketplace. “Given the impact VAN GOGH ALIVE had here, I’m confident the response to this world premiere event will be even more enthusiastic.”
