Glass Planets - St. Petersburg, FL

Chihuly Collection, Morean Art Center, St. Petersburg, FL

On my recent three-week trip to Florida, one of the stops we made was in St Petersburg. I had never been there and I really enjoyed the city. One of the days, we had rain (can't complain too much given the terrible winter we were missing), so we decided to visit the local art museum that was featuring Chihuly glass. I had never heard of Chihuly or seen his work, but my friend who taught the arts in high school knew his work. I wasn't sure what to expect, but was blown away by the shapes and colors of the glass. Better yet, photographs were permitted of the art. 

I shot quite a few of these works of art and was quite pleased with the results. This one was my favorite. It features wonderfully colored glass globes that are to represent planets. I am not sure how the boat plays into the artist's mind, but I thought it was cool. In any case, I highly recommend this exhibit, especially on a rainy day.
