Salvador Dali ~ “Galatea of the Spheres”, 1952
The Galatea of the Spheres is a marvelous portrait of Salvador Dali’s wife known as Gala. Gala was born Elena Ivanovna Diakonova (7 September 1894 – 10 June 1982) in Russia, to a family of intellectuals. Dali first met Gala in 1929 while working on the film Un Chien Andalou with Luis Bunuel- Gala was the wife of another Surrealist, Paul Eluard. Salvador Dali seduced Gala away from Eluard. In 1934 Dali and Gala were married in a civil ceremony in Paris and in 1958 the church permitted a Catholic ceremony (Gala’s former husband died in 1952) and forever after she became known as Gala Éluard Dalí. Gala managed Dali’s business affairs for their entire marriage a task to which the artist was unsuited. Salvador Dali considered Gala his world and his saviour and signed many of his works with her name. <source>

You are all invited to this free event! Sept. 16th WISCONSIN’S MINING STANDOFF” TO SHOW AT UW-SUPERIOR
On Tuesday, September 16, at 7p, UW-Superior will hold a free film screening of “WISCONSIN’S MINING STANDOFF”, a new documentary about the controversial proposal to dig an open-pit iron mine in northern Wisconsin. The 25-minute film will be followed by a discussion featuring GLIFWC Attorney Philomena Kebec, Northland College Geologist Tom Fitz, and Ashland County Board Chair Pete Russo. The event will be held in UW-Superior’s Holden Fine Arts Center at the Manion Theater.
A proposal to dig what could be one of North America’s largest open pit iron mines in northern Wisconsin pits corporate interests against a coalition of tribes and local residents.
On March 11, 2013, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed legislation that rewrote the state’s iron mining laws, paving the way for Gogebic Taconite (GTAC) to dig a $1.5 billion open-pit mine in the pristine woods of the Penokee mountain range. The mine, which could eventually reach 22-miles in length, provoked an immediate standoff. On one side is GTAC and its supporters anxious for jobs in an area with unemployment double the national average. On the other stand the tribes, residents, and political leaders intent on preserving the land and protecting the water from contamination. Fault Lines follows the unfolding battle on the ground and traces the way money and power have influenced the laws that will determine whether and how this mine gets built.
