Virtual Coffee with a Curator
Even though the Dali Museum is closed you can still visit virtually with Coffee with a Curator!
Curator of Education, Peter Tush presents An Introduction to Dalí’s Symbols. It is often stated that Dalí’s puzzling images invite symbolic interpretation and that his symbols are both general and personal. This talk will survey a selection of the most memorable symbols found in Dalí’s art, and demonstrate how he uses these symbols to create a personal language and an iconic brand. From crutches to ants to melting watches, understanding Dalí’s symbols allows a deeper experience of his art. Visit the Dali Museum YouTube channel at 10:30am June third to discover the rich world of Dalí’s art https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZLq3ywvtZo&feature=youtu.be

Arrowhead Nature Trail
All Year Long
Explore several coastal habitats on the Arrowhead Nature Trail at Fort De Soto Park, an interpretive walk with plenty of stops where you’ll learn all about the salt-dependent plants along the rim of Mullet Key Bayou. Openings between the mangroves enable you to enjoy scenic views with a wide sweep of the shallows of the bay, where dolphin and manatee might be cruising just offshore.
The trail can be a bit squishy underfoot as you draw near to the coast, and it’s important that you follow the signs or directions so you don’t walk in circles! Still, this easy 1.4 mile network of trails offers a great overview of the flora and fauna of the Gulf Coast. https://floridahikes.com/fortdesotoarrowhead
