Morean Arts Center - Chihuly Collection
The Chihuly Collection is a 'stunning, permanent collection of world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly's unique glass artwork', a well-loved collection presented by the Morean Arts Center.
Morean is a free contemporary art gallery that is considered to be one of the very oldest in all of Florida. The art center has its main building, the Chihuly collection across the street (housed separately), and a glass blowing studio, Morean Glass Studio, right behind it. All of these buildings are in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, along Central Avenue.
The Chihuly Collection is the first installation of Dale Chihuly's art within a building specifically designed for it. Inside you will find large scale installations such as the Ruby Red Icicle Chandelier, as well as smaller works like the Niijima Floats and Ikebana. Take a guided tour of this collection and learn all about Chihuly and his works, and how he has shaped not only glass creation art but contemporary art in general in his time. Group tours can also include the Morean Glass Studio and Arts Center.
