ST. PETERSBURG – Celebrating yet another milestone in the unique partnership between famed glass artist Dale Chihuly and the Arts Center, an exclusive Chihuly intaglio print series entitled “St. Pete’s Sunny Baskets” is now available only through the Arts Center.
Created exclusively for and sold solely at the center, proceeds from the sale of the prints will benefit educational programming and future center education initiatives. The 22.5” x 29.75” intaglio prints are $2,200 unframed or can be ordered with a frame.
These 74 vibrant pieces represent history in the making as the center embarks on one of St. Petersburg’s most exciting cultural endeavors.
In August 2005, Chihuly and the Arts Center announced plans for the Chihuly Collection at the center, a permanent exhibition devoted to the artist’s work. The collection will be one component of the Art Village, a $200 million residential and retail development anchored by a new Arts Center. Upon its completion in 2008, the development, will feature one of the largest glass centers in the southeast United States.
The Arts Center is at 719 Central Ave. Call Tyler Jones at 822-7872, ext. 16.
