The Chihuly permanent collection at the Morean Arts Center is small, but dynamic.
The glass works are superb, the presentation is amazing and the colors are memorable.
You can take a guided tour (free), but we decided to do it on our own and spend as much time as we wanted at each display.
Each exhibit is more breathtaking than the last, and you need to go through it at least twice, once in both directions to appreciate the wonder of this glassworks.
Pictures do not do this exhibit justice, it must be seen. Your admission ticket is good for the whole day, so you can return as many times as you want, the waterfront area around the Arts Center is beautiful and there are restaurants and quaint shops all around.
Definitely not to be missed!!!

Visited the Morean as part of the Chihuly exhibit. They had $5 Saturday with admission to both, which is quite the bargain. hiked from the Chihuly to the Morean, which is a bit of a treak but there are lots of shops, bars and restaurants along the way.

The glass blowing demo is great. it just amazes me. People with talent like this are so lucky.

Highly recommended!

What a wonderful place for artists to display and sell their art, while enjoying a stroll down beautiful St. Pete's Central Ave with it's variety of shops/restaurants. Worth seeing and bringing guests to visit with much to do surrounding the center.

This is a nice place to take tweens for a intro to art. Small, but well displayed. Love the Hot Shop where you can watch glass being blown by great artists!

While the Art Center has some interesting works, the best part is watching the demonstration in the Hot Shop. These guys are true artists and you need to make sure to time it right to see them create a true work of art. Of course they are all for sale, too
