ST. PETERSBURG - The Chihuly Collection presented by the Morean Arts Center is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the collection’s opening Friday through Sunday, July 10-12.

The Chihuly Collection, which opened in 2010, continues to be a major arts attraction in the Tampa Bay area and is a major contributor to the transformation of St. Petersburg into the No. 1 Arts Destination in the country for mid-size cities.

“We are so proud to be such an integral part of the arts community here in beautiful St. Petersburg,” said Andy Schlauch in a press release. Schlauch is the executive director of the Chihuly Collection. “The collection is only five years in and the possibilities are endless. A big thank you goes out to the people of St. Petersburg for their continued support of the Chihuly Collection and the Morean Arts Center, we wouldn’t be here without them.”

DUNEDIN - The Dunedin Historical Museum’s newest exhibit, “Victorious: Dunedin, Pinellas County, and World War II,” is on display through May 2016 in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.

The exhibit and related programming will explore Dunedin life during World War II, the victory of the Allies, and what was happening in Dunedin at the end of the war.

Prior to 1942, Dunedin Hotel was converted to U.S. Marine Barracks and the Dunedin area became important training ground for troops. Donald Roebling developed the Alligator tank, which was a valuable amphibious vehicle for rescue missions during the war.

LARGO - Lately, sculptor Darren Beistle of Largo has been intrigued by a simple question: “What is the value of visual arts?”

He poses the question both in a philosophical and dollar-figure sense. Practically, of course, the artist would like to sell his work, a tall order for an artist known for large, and expensive, figurative sculptures. To that end, his latest series are eye-catching, colorful mixed media pieces designed “to be consumed,” as he explained it.

ST. PETERSBURG - William Pachner, one of the most distinguished artists ever to live in the Tampa Bay area, turns 100 on Friday, April 17. In celebration, the MFA is presenting a select installation, William Pachner: Centenary, in the Lee Malone Gallery from Friday, April 10, through Sunday, July 26.

Katherine Pill, Assistant Curator of Art after 1950, has selected the works.

One of them, View of My Birthplace (1958), was the only painting by an area artist chosen for the MFA’s impressive Inaugural Exhibition, which opened the Museum in 1965. It recognized Pachner’s talent and his growing stature in the art world and is an ideal work to spotlight the MFA’s 50th anniversary.
