Sunrise Over the Museum - Dali Museum, St Petersburg, Florida

This unique looking building sits on the St Petersburg waterfront and is home to the largest collection of Salvatore Dali's works outside of Europe. The artworks were collected privately by an Ohio couple over a span of twenty-five years. They decided to display them in a museum setting and attracted quite the number of visitors. Ultimately, they decided to move the collection to St Petersburg. In 2011, the present building was built and is now the permanent home of Dali's art pieces. The building was designed to be storm and hurricane resistant, and, as a result, the large glass entryway featured in this photo is 1.5 inches thick with 18 inch concrete walls. We were not able to visit the museum during our short stay, but I was able to shoot it just after sunrise.
