If you are spending at least 2 days in St. Petersburg, I highly recommend that you: tour the Chihuly Collection on Central Ave. The ticket also gives you an entrance to watch a glass blowing demonstration at Morean Arts Center located across the street. While waiting for the demonstration to begin, you can view local Artists displaying their creations inside the Art Center. Walk around the exterior of the building to enter the Glass Studio to get to the demonstration. Enter through the Sales Shop where you can purchase glass objects hand blown by a variety of Glass Blowing Artists. The Blowing demonstration is pretty awesome to watch if you've never seen glass being blown and transformed into an object. The demo lasts about 1 hour. However, to increase your exposure to Glass Blowing, book a personal one on one Glass Blowing Class! I added Glass Blowing to my bucket list and took a Class. Don't worry if you have no experience, I did not. The instructor will guide you through the entire process. I created a green and blue swirl sculpture. The Class is about 30 minutes. The reason for the 2 day visit, your creation needs time to cool down for at least 24 hours. They can ship it to you if your visit is less than 1 day in St. Pete.
This art center has an amazing collection of art that is vibrant, impressive and interactive. Admission is free and staff is very nice. They even have a cafe on-site!
