Embark on a journey inside of your subconscious, lose track of time, and get lost in the strange and unusual. This surreal soiree features larger than life art, audio and visual displays. In association with The Clock In Tour, this event has been meticulously curated with The Eye of the Avant-Garde himself, Salvador Dali, in mind. Dali and his wife, Gala, threw galas of their own throughout their years together. Their over-the-top dinner parties were made complete with insane menu items, intricately designed ambience, and bizarre costumes. To pay homage to the artist behind the famous melting clock painting, “The Persistence of Memory”, we encourage you all to take a walk on the wild side through your local thrift store and create a high fashion ensemble from a low budget. For those that may not be aware, the temporal lobe enables one to process sound and vision, recognize objects, and access memories. Temporal as an adjective relates to time and worldly affairs. We plan to take you on a trip inside your unconscious mind, and give you a tangible experience of the intangible aspects of the human psyche. Beware before you enter, things are not always as they seem.
