I have a postcard for Catalan Days, a multidisciplinary festival featuring artists from Catalonia and the Balearic Islands.

"Produced by the Institut Ramon Llull, the festival includes dance, film, literature, classical, jazz and electronic music, plus world famous Catalan cuisine, and is held in partnership with the Baryshnikov Arts Center, Jazz Standard, Lincoln Center’s Film Society, PEN American Center World Voices, Carnegie Hall, and the CUNY Graduate Center."

There will be a program of FREE events at the Baryshnikov Arts Center.

Also: In this Lesson Plan (PDF) from the Salvador Dalí Museum, in Florida, students are introduced to art history terms and learn to identify examples of Impressionism, Cubism, Surrealism, and Classicism in Dalí's art. Students also learn about Surrealist games and techniques, like Exquisite Corpse and automatic writing.
