Atavistic Vestiges After the Rain
He was born "Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dali I Domenech" at 8:45 on the morning of May 11, 1904 in Figueres, Spain in the foothills of the Pyrenees.  As a teenager and art student, I had the joy of visiting the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida.  I was amazed with his dreamy and surreal creations, and the impressive size of many of the pieces.  We had used his iconic, melting clocks painting for our senior high school theme performance, "Time Warp".  I designed a t-shirt and painted a large banner that hung from the ceiling of my high school towards the end of my senior year.  I was definitely a graphic designer + marketing kid from a young age.

So, here were are now in 2012, a terrific independent theater company in San Rafael, "AlterTheater" is performing "References to Salvador Dali make me Hot", by two-time Obie Award winner and Oscar nominee Jose Rivera.  In honor of this great theater group and Dali's Birthday, I am giving away 2 tickets to this Saturday's show in San Rafael.  All you have to do is comment below what your favorite Dali painting is and why, and go ahead and "Like" AltherTheater on Facebook if you wish.  The winner will be selected at the end of the day Fri 5/11.
