Watch lectures, see exhibitions and find activities from local artists, museums and galleries.

WATCH

Duplicating Dalí: Visit the Dalí Museum’s YouTube channel to find their Coffee With a Curator lecture series. In one episode, local artist Steven Kenny explains how he re-created Dalí's Daddy Longlegs of the Evening-Hope. It was a 19-month process that he documented through photographs. He explains every aspect of the painting and shares his thoughts on where Dalí's influences came from.

As Da Art World Might Turn: Go to artist Kalup Linzy’s website and disappear down a rabbit hole of his performance-based video series based on soap operas. Linzy weaves dramatic story lines while playing a number of different characters. You might recognize other local artists in As Da Art World Might Turn, and actor-artist James Franco in another series. Linzy got his MFA at the University of South Florida and went on to become noticed by a New York Times art critic, leading to his work being shown at Museum of Modern Art, the Met and the Whitney. kaluplinzystudio.com.

SEE

Flower Power: The group show will be hanging at Mize Gallery, but it will also appear online on Friday. Artists riff on the term coined by the beat poet Allen Ginsburg in 1965 in reference to peaceful antiwar protests. We can’t really protest a virus, but some uplifting imagery is definitely in order right now. chadmize.com.

Florida CraftArt: Find a virtual tour of the fine craft gallery on its website, as well as three pages of videos from past exhibitions. Bonus: The gallery has hosted the Buddhist Tibetan monks several times, so there’s some footage of them chanting — a much-needed moment of zen. floridacraftart.org.

Silver and Gold: Syd Entel Galleries and Susan Benjamin Glass are showing a new exhibition of paintings, glass art and jewelry online. Their website is robust, with images of work from the artists they represent, so you can browse for hours. sydentelgalleries.com.

Stuart Peterman: The Odessa-based artist has a hand in metal sculpture, abstract painting and jewelry, so you’ll be captivated for a while. stuartpeterman.com.

DO

Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg: The museum is keeping people engaged online with art games on its social media (follow @mfastpete on Instagram) and artmaking activities on its website that are aimed at kids but would be fun for anyone. mfastpete.org.
