Atlanta's High to feature overnight Dali viewing

ATLANTA (AP) - If you think Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dali's masterpieces are better seen in the wee hours, here's your chance.

For the final weekend of its "Dali: The Late Work" show, Atlanta's High Museum of Art is presenting "Dali 'til Dawn." The exhibition will be open for 31 straight hours, from 10 a.m on Saturday, Jan. 8, through 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 9.

The final celebration will include three "insomniac tours" with exhibition curator Elliot King early in the morning on Jan. 9.

From 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Jan. 8, the High will present "audience-driven performances," allowing participants to perform or present work including rhymes, tunes, skits, readings, dances and shadow puppets.

The museum will free coffee and energy drinks for those needing a boost. Advance ticket purchase is recommended.
