A permanent Salvador Dalí museum in Monterey

Salvador Dalí did most of his surrealist painting and mustache twisting in his native Spain. But during the wartime 1940s, Dalí hid out in Pebble Beach, where he was a regular among the artists, illustrators and oddballs who populated old Carmel.

That temporary legacy now has a permanent home at Dalí17, an exhibit of 570 works that has taken over the Museum of Monterey. The dripping clock paintings, etchings, lithographs, sculptures and tapestry display belong to Pebble Beach resident Dmitry Piterman, a Ukrainian American businessman who became obsessed with Dalí while a student at UC Berkeley.
