Dali Miami 002Dalí Miami, produced and curated by (from left) Manny Hernandez, Michael Rosen and Reed Horth, runs through Sunday at the Moore Building in Miami's Design District.

From reporter Howard Cohen's Miami Herald feature about the exhibit:

Along with his glass masterpiece Montre Molle (Melting Clock, 1971) the gouache Spring Rain (1949) and the rare intaglio The Grasshopper Child (1934), the 200 works on view will include 70 sculptures, among them Dalí’s 1964 bronze Venus de Milo with Drawers and the 1972 bronze, Winged Triton.

By comparison, St. Petersburg’s renowned Dalí Museum has just two of his sculptures on exhibit.

“Dalí is one of those artists who is somewhat misunderstood,” said Reed Horth, president of Robin Rile Fine Art, a Miami art concierge. Horth, who is curating Dalí Miami, delights in sharing stories he has heard from his friend Robert Descharnes, a secretary to Dalí who is a leading authenticator of his art.
