The Incredible Art Department

The Incredible Art Department
The Incredible Art Department was born in November, 1994. It is one of the oldest art and education websites on the Internet. The site began as a showcase for elementary art students in a school in Indianapolis and has grown to serve the international community. When the site first went online, Yahoo was two college students collecting links and Google didn't exist. It's been fun seeing how websites have changed through time. Very few still exist from the early days of the web.

Art ArtFoodHistory The Wines of Gala: Salvador Dalí’s Surrealist Wine Guide Republished for the First Time in 40 Years Last published in 1978, The Wines of Gala is Salvador Dalí’s eccentric guide to wine grapes and their origin. Filled with over 140 appropriated artworks and collages collected and created by Dalí, the book is an equally surreal follow-up to TASCHEN’s reprinting of the artist’s cookbook Les Diners de Gala. In addition to Jean-François Millet’s The Angelus, which was a constant point of reference in Dali’s works, visuals include a Bacchus-like kitten, and a sort of tableau vivant featuring Dali himself. In keeping with Dalí’s efforts to create artwork based on his emotions, memories, and dreams, the artist chose to organize the wines in the book by how they influenced his mood.
