Chihuly-Cover

St. Petersburg, Fl.-   Located in the heart of downtown, located on Central Ave. St.Pete, you can find The Morean Art Center. Marked with its large, purplish, crystal formation The Center is permanent home to one of the worlds finest glass artist works, the Chihuly Exhibit.

The Morean Arts Center has been a leader in the revitalization of the downtown area for years. helping anchor a thriving arts district, composed of galleries, museums and businesses and catering to artists. Lucky for us, one of those artist is Dale Chihuly. The Morean Center is also very gracious for being able to showcase his work, they designed the building to do just that. Enhance the attendees experience with large rooms, high ceiling and specific lighting to really accentuate his unique, and sometimes larger than life installations.

The Exhibit

Designed so that the art and architecture of the museum work together, you find yourself entering rooms that would make large glass sculpture from the ceilings mimic some futuristic imaginary world. In another room, you can almost feel as if you are in some sort of glass winter wonderland.  Each visitor will have their own interpretations of Chihuly’s collection, but isn’t that the point of art?!

The collection features 18 installations, spanning from several of the artist’s most popular series. 

The curators have done a great job giving visitors a better understand for Chihuly’s work, his life, and the incredible artistic inspiration he brings to so many artist throughout the World.

Morean Arts Center

With downtown St.Pete growing, and there being so much to enjoy when visiting the area, I strongly suggest spending a nice, air conditioned afternoon walking the exhibit.

The Morean Arts Center is a community-based visual arts organization. They have been a part of the St. Petersburg cultural landscape since 1917.  Connecting people with art through daily programming, offered 363 days each year.
