SALVADOR DALI’S MUSTACHE FOUND ON DELTA FLIGHT

In celebration of the High Museum Art of Atlanta’s new exhibition, “Dalí: The Late Work,” Delta has decked out a 757 plane with a Salvador Dalí-esque mustache. The plane, which went into service yesterday, will fly domestically. The High invites travelers who spot or ride on the plane to share their experience on the museum’s Facebook page and on Twitter. Delta Air Lines is the Official Airline of the High Museum of Art.

The exhibition brings together a collection of more than 40 paintings, plus film, sculptures and photographs—many never before seen in public. The exhibition considers for the first time the diverse body of work that Dalí created in the last forty years of his career.
