Extraordinary. The gardens of blown glass defy an apt description. This artist is a living legacy, and even if you are familiar with his work, the collections are worth your time. Try to visit early in the day. Too many people like to talk too much and its distracting.

Though it was a small gallery I thought every piece was just stunningingly beautiful. It's $15 to get in to the gallery, it's worth it considering you can only see his work in a few places in the world.

If you love glass art you will love this place. One of my favorite places to go. Had my vow renewal there and though it was tight getting the people in and sitting it worked out beautifully. Great staff. Just gorgeous art.

Take time to see this exhibit. You will not be disappointed. Breathtaking glass blown art. In the Downtown St. Pete Pier area.

I'm a big fan of Chihuly, so I had to visit the Morean Arts Center's Chihuly Collection while visiting St. Petersburg last winter. I've seen many Chihuly exhibits and, while this collection offered similar displays to other Chihuly exhibits, these at the Morean Arts Center were just a bit better. In fact, they were lovely! (I was slightly disappointed though because I had expected the collection to be larger.) I toured the collection in a group led by a knowledgeable guide who was very courteous and friendly. We had close access to the individual glass pieces. I have special needs and requested a wheelchair which the staff kindly provided. More importantly, the guide did not hover treating me as though I might somehow damage the exhibits. What a relief!
