Dmitry & Rebecca Piterman
Dmitry Piterman has spent his entire life appreciating and collecting Salvador Dalí’s artwork. His private collection has been shown throughout the world, but has now found a permanent home in Monterey, California.
In 2016, the Piterman’s offered up their huge collection of Dalí works to the Monterey History & Art Association. The association, which ran a drab local history museum at Custom House Plaza, happily took on the collection.
The permanent exposition is managed by Dmitry’s wife, Rebecca Piterman. Her background in design and marketing has helped the space flourish, which now sees about 50,000 visitors a year.
Both Dmitry and Rebecca emigrated to the United States and found themselves drawn to Monterey, just as Salvador Dalí did–which is hardly a surprise, as these beautiful coastlines and bustling communities inspire us all!
