He directs the Museum’s K-12 education and is responsible for the Student Surrealist Art Exhibit. He directs the Coffee with a Curator lecture series and has presented on topics ranging from Dalí’s obsession with Leonardo da Vinci to Dalí’s Hollywood collaborations with Disney and the Marx Brothers. Mr. Tush is an art history graduate from New College, Sarasota, and the University of South Florida, where he produced a Master’s thesis on Dalí & Identity.
