Dali17 in Monterey, Calif.
Permanent
The largest private collection of original Salvador Dali art in the United States, and the first and only museum of its kind on the West Coast, Dali17 now has a permanent home in Monterey. Opened this summer, the exhibit holds more than 570 works of art by the Spanish surrealist artist who lived in Monterey in the 1940s. In 1941, Dali hosted a fundraiser in town — with guests including Bob Hope and Gloria Vanderbilt — to aid WWII refugee artists. Dali17 will permanently display the largest collection of photographs from the event, A Surrealistic Night in an Enchanted Forest. dali17.com
