THE DALI EXPO

The Dali Expo is the first permanent West Coast exhibition of surrealist artist Salvador Dali. Located at the Museum of Monterey, the exhibition features the country’s largest private collection with over 580 works including lithographs, etchings, rare sculptures and tapestries. The Dali Expo’s mission is to revive Dali’s local history by showcasing his influence locally and capturing the rich history that ties him to the Monterey region.
