A friend and I visited the Morean Art Center and the Chihuly Collection. The price was fair and the exhibits were stunning. Photos can never do justice to the exhibits. The staff and volunteers were kind, friendly and helpful. Our docent was very knowledgable about Dale Chihuly and the art. The gift shop had a number of interesting offerings. There was an inspiring and informative video about all of Chihuly's work and his background.

Great area to experience the local artists and their work. Loved it! Look for local coupons to use for entrance fees. The museum has lots of quirky as well as traditional pieces. Lots of mixed media pieces. Behind the museum visit the hot house. The glass blowing demonstration was awesome!!! Took a zillion pics there! Beautiful glass pieces in their store. They have classes for all ages (for a hefty fee) - look between the museum and the hothouse to see the "gallery" of classwork. They had a lot of younger classes work shown when we were there...paper jelly fish suspended in air. My hubby even enjoyed this visit, and he thinks some of the newer artwork is bizarre, but enjoyed the majority of this, especially the glass work.

Everyone needs to experience the one-on-one glass experience at the Hot Shop! It was amazing..something that will wet your "art-buds" to try again and again. David, my instructor, was very good. He walked me through the steps of making my personal sculptor - a glass egg-shaped paperweight. I can't enough as to what an AMAZING experience this was for me. Strongly encourage all to explore this option while visiting the area.

We stayed through two presentations, and visited with the artists. Was a very interesting presentation, and the related glass work for sale was exceptional. The other art in the attached space was also very nice.
