Before I share what this whole post is all about, let me say thank you to my friend, Arianne, for taking my ootd shots for this post! If you want to see her work, please feel free to visit her blog here.

So over the weekend, I visited the Winnipeg Art Gallery to see the Salvador Dali Exhibition. I was able to partake in Flavours of Art, which is basically the gallery's dinner and art tour program. The night started with a three course meal consisting of a beet salad, rack of lamb and mini cheese balls. After dinner, we were directed to the main gallery where a tour guide was waiting for the group. Now, I'm not the biggest art person but I do know how to appreciate well made pieces. I have to say, it was not only fascinating to see the Dali paintings up close, but more so it was interesting to know the stories behind some of his great works. I started remembering some of my history lessons in high school and found myself enjoying the additional information I was learning from the event. I highly recommend visiting your local museum or art gallery. If you're from Winnipeg, there will be the last Flavours of Art event on January 23, 2015. If you're interested, head to their site for more info!
