Salvador Dali Museum gets $38 million plan for expansion

Published on : Thursday, April 25, 2019

Salvador Dali Museum, an artwork museum in St. Petersburg, Florida is going to expand with $38 million plan would transform the parking lot of the museum. This parking lot will transform into a multilevel structure which would house digital interactions and more parking. This would expand upon a collection of work that’s as impressive as the building it sits in.

 

Hank Hine, the museum’s director said that this is one of the most important collection of one of the most famous artists of the 20th century.

 

 

He says of the $38 million, the museum is asking the county for $17.5 million tourism tax dollars. The rest would be raised through private donations.

 

 

Following the 2011 opening of its current hurricane-proof facility, Salvador Dali Museum has become a downtown St. Pete destination, boosting the city’s profile internationally while generating hundreds of millions of dollars for the area. Hine says the expansion will bring even more. The new building would serve as a parking garage, which they desperately need, and will also bring interactive galleries, a Dali IMAX, and hologram experience.

 

 

Hine said that Dali himself will welcome the visitor and tell each visitor about his work.

 

 

Pinellas County’s Tourism Development Council will take up the issue as to whether the museum should receive public money for the project.
