Dali17 is a permanent exhibition of remarkable and unprecedented art, including original etchings, mixed media, lithographs, and rare sculptures by one of the twentieth century’s premier and most celebrated surrealist artists, Spaniard Salvador Dali. The name Dali17 ties Dali’s influence and history to the original 17 Mile Drive, where he lived and worked. This is the first permanent Dali exhibition located on the West Coast and the largest private collection on exhibition in the United States. It has previously been exhibited in Spain and Belgium. Monterey was the only place in the United States where Salvador Dali lived and painted.

Contemporary galleries complement the old-world elegance and lavish rose gardens of this gorgeous, historic estate.
