The Dale Chihuly Collection at the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg was lovely to see.  Dark rooms filled with stalagmites of color and translucent spires reaching for the ceiling.  Seeing Chihuly's process is fascinating!  He works with a cadre of assistants that execute the work while he draws out instructions on a drawing pad using colored oil sticks.  An audience is there to watch in theatre style seating and celebrate the finished piece of art.
