We took an overnight trip to Dunedin and St. Petersburg, FL, this week. In St. Pete we visited The Chihuly Collection, a permanent exhibit of privately owned glass artworks by Dale Chihuly. The collection is housed in a museum on the waterfront, and is within walking distance of several other art museums, including the new Salvador Dali Museum. You'll know you're in the right place when you see this large amethyst glass sculpture outside. The tower in the distance is that of the beautiful Vinoy Renaissance Resort.
The Chihuly glass is breathtaking to say the least. Be sure to click on the link above to get an idea of the exhibit as photos are understandably not permitted. It was a warm and breezy day, and we did a lot of walking in the downtown area. I'm drawn to courtyards, so could not resist taking a photo when we came across this one, left.
