Appreciate the Genius of Dali

Salvador Dali’s Santiago El Grande, considered among his greatest work, stands as the centrepiece of Fredericton’s Beaverbrook Art Gallery. The painting was purchased under the noses of the Spanish Government after the 1958 World Fair by one of Dali’s earliest supporters, New Brunswick tycoon James Dunn. History, stories and art come alive with the help of local storytellers, making any visit a standout cultural attraction in the province.
