  • This is a visual piece of art from the grounds of the museum to the facade to the interior to the art. It sits at ground zero for downtown St Pete nestled between the water and the multiple restaurants and high rise condos. Escape from civilization and enter a world of first class art forms from the old masters to free wheeling folks determined to express themselves visually. Take time to muse over the reason people created what they did. Don't rush through the museum or you'll miss the tranquility and peace it offers.
  • They have new exhibits often. The parking is in the back lot. I attended one of their intimate concerts which they host regularly. The building is clean and they have a decent variety of art work. They also have a cafe. If the weather is good you can eat outside with a view of boat docks.
