St. Petersburg’s flourishing arts scene is recognized by travel writers across the U.S.

Most recently, readers of the New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle were clued in on something Tampa Bay residents have known for years; St. Pete is home to world-famous museums and dozens of art galleries.  If you haven’t ventured to the city’s downtown recently, you might be surprised how much the arts scene has grown.

Now, it's Pablo Picasso's turn to come to Salvador Dali.

Some works feature the trademark surrealistic flair that could only come from the brush of Salvador Dali. Others are from so early in his career that they don't look like his trademark work. And they all have never been on display in the U.S.  Beginning today, art lovers on this side of the Atlantic will get their first look at 12 works by Dali.
