Dragon*Con Joins the Madness at the High Museum of Art

Madman or genius? Whatever you call him, Salvador Dalí was a master of the unexpected. From melting clocks to an éclair on Alice Cooper’s head, Dalí rebelled against convention like no one else. A purple velvet suit? He wore it. A crazy, twisty mustache? He sported it. A little black book that read like a who’s-who of 1970’s pop culture? He had one.

Immerse yourself in Dalí’s world Labor Day weekend. Bring your Dragon*Con badge to the High September 2nd through the 5th and get $5.00 off an adult admission to see Dalí: The Late WorkEnter Dalí’s world now!


Super Heroes, and Star Trek, and Steampunk, Oh My!Look up in the air… it’s a bird… it’s a plane… no! It’s a super hero changing history while boldly going where no one else has gone and breaking world records along the way!

Last year, 903 of you came out and helped us make it into the Record Holder’s Republic book for the largest number of people dancing to Thriller!

It was so much fun we decided to give it another THREE tries! And no, it is not for the record number of Stormtroopers we can fit into an elevator! Although… just kidding!
