Event Details

Make no illusion. Salvador Dalí’s mesmerizing works will adorn the THE LUME Indianapolis on Floor 4 of the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields from March 2, 2024 through March 2, 2025. The Spanish artist is known for his surreal dreamscapes of melting clocks and fascinating creatures. Fluttering butterflies will envelope guests who step into Dalí’s wild and wonderful worlds.

Mystery and discovery abound. Let your imagination run wild in the renewed activity space titled Let’s Get Surreal. Artificial intelligence will transform your written word into a two-dimensional masterpiece.

The exhibition will showcase four large, vibrant watercolor paintings by Salvador Dalí from the IMA’s permanent collection. The paintings were originally designed for the opera, The Spanish Lady and the Roman Cavalier, and will be making their collective museum debut for the first time since they were acquired in 1973.

THE LUME Indianapolis featuring Dalí Alive will feature brand-new digital content in all three digital gallery spaces. Additionally, the new café concept, El Mercado Surreal, will boast a selection of Spanish-inspired small bites by Newfields’ culinary team. You’ll be able to daydream while you sip Spanish brews and refreshing cocktails.

As the Indianapolis Museum of Art has grown to become an internationally renowned museum, we now turn our attention toward increasing our emphasis on combining art with nature. This combination of art and nature was always part of the original vision—and now we see a vision for the next fifty years. The galleries are surrounded by gardens, water features, over a hundred acres of woodland filled with surprise and beauty. The campus itself is ideal for performances, afternoon walks, kite-flying, cloud-gazing, memory-making, new-idea-having. There’s a mansion to stage unforgettable events, restaurants for relaxing, bars for microbrews and friendships. Newfields is a setting where it’s easy to make connections of all sorts. Like no place else in Indianapolis.
