Peter Tush, curator of education of The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, will give a special Zoom discussion from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. on Friday, April 2 at Penn State State Lehigh Valley (PSU-LV).
Tush will be presenting: “Dalí’s Tragic Myth of Millet’s Angelus” as a paranoiac critical response to Freud’s study of Leonardo Da Vinci.
Penn State Lehigh Valley Honors Program is sponsoring the presentation.
Tush has worked for several decades supporting the The Dali Museum's educational mission. He holds an undergraduate degree in art history from New College in Sarasota and a master’s degree in art history from the University of South Florida. He is a key interpreter of the Dalí collection and special exhibitions, and also trains the Dalí docents, scripts the audio guides, directs the Dalí’s school programming and student exhibits and works with the curatorial team to develop special exhibitions. During the span of his career, Tush has presented on a wide range of Dalí-related topics including Surrealism and women, surreal gastronomy, Dalí and Hollywood and Dalí’s Catalan heritage.
Elizabeth Flaherty, associate teaching professor at Penn State Lehigh Valley, is the coordinator of the arts administration program and honors programs. “The Penn State Lehigh Valley Honors Program is grateful to have been granted the unique opportunity for Mr. Peter Tush to speak with us. It is a rare privilege to have such an authority on Dalí illuminate the psychological complexities of the surrealist realm. We are humbled and honored to have him join us,” Flaherty said.
