Artists Respond to Dale Chihuly’s Work

. . .
Through July 31
Chihuly Collection
Details here

. . .
The Morean Arts Center in downtown St. Pete has been a home for artists and arts education for more than 100 years, and has also been running the influential Chihuly Collection of glass art since 2010.

The Morean wanted to see what Dale Chihuly’s impact is on artists who work in other mediums. They selected 10 area muralists, painters, installation artists, ceramicists and more – and asked each to select a piece from the Chihuly Collection they admire, and create a work of art ‘inspired by’ that particular piece.

“Some of these artists’ connections to Chihuly’s work are more straightforward than others – many were influenced by his powerful forms and sense of color. We hope this exhibition introduces you to extraordinary local artists you may not have known before, and helps you look at Chihuly’s work in a new and engaging way.”
