Salvador Dali Artwork on Display at Alvin Sherman Library

NSU Public Exhibit Explores Unique Relationship Between Dali and Maltz Couple

FT. LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – Artwork by surrealist painter Salvador Dali will be on display now until Dec. 14 in the Second Floor Gallery of the Alvin Sherman Library, Research and Information Technology Center at Nova Southeastern University (NSU), 3301 College Ave. in Davie.

The exhibit, Dear Max, Dear Friend, is comprised of artwork and memorabilia from the Dr. Maxwell and Anne Maltz collection. It explores the unique relationship Dali had with the Maltz couple, whose philanthropy helped create NSU’s Maxwell Maltz Building.

Dali is well known for his eccentric behavior and peculiar images, such as the melting clocks in his best known work, The Persistence of Memory, completed in 1931.

But to the Maltzes, the Spanish painter was simply a dear and gifted friend. Dali and Dr. Maltz established their friendship at the height of their respective careers, most likely after Dr. Maltz performed surgery on Dali’s wife, Gala.

Dr. Maltz was an innovative surgeon, author and playwright, who begun his affiliation with Nova Southeastern University in the 1970s. He published his bestseller, Psycho-Cybernetics, in 1960. Dali later created an interpretive painting based on Dr. Maltz’s book, which is part of the exhibit.

The Dear Max, Dear Friend exhibit is open during the following hours:

  • Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Sundays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
