Imagination Museum St Petersburg Fl
Wonderful brand new museum . Some very unique pieces, put together well. Gives history onStudio art- since the 1960s, and what the future will bring. Highly recommend. Lots of free parking in lot behind museum also 2 hr free parking in street out front.
This was during a free museum day, but the glass is so beautiful, I shall be back. Two floors. Great pieces.
We have long wanted to see this museum and finally did so today. The galleries are artfully set so that you easily wander from one into the next and dont miss any of the fabulous pieces of glass art. I was expecting lots of blown glass pieces but was impressed with other forms of glass art such as cast glass. Definitely a good addition to the art scene in St Pete. Well located in the new trendy part of Central Avenue. Free parking right behind the building is a plus. Do not miss this place!
Attended a business function at Imagine Museum the other night and was not expecting to see such a great display of artwork totally done in glass form. If you are visiting St. Petersburg, FL I highly recommend a visit. The work is incredible. The museum is located in a building that would probably go unnoticed as you drive by except for the name on the building. It has a free parking lot and street parking. Perfect place to spend a couple of hours to get out of the Florida heat or rain.

Imagine Museum features cutting edge art
See glass artwork from around the world at the Imagine Museum in St. Petersburg.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – St. Petersburg has many opportunities to see fine art, from the murals along Central Avenue to the Bending Arc at the Pier. Among the museums showing specialized works of art, the Imagine Museum stands out as unique.
“We are a museum that showcases contemporary glass from around the world,” stated Jane Buckman, the executive director of Imagine Museum.
The museum is full of creative works all with the common element of being made of glass, but glass art is not an “old” art form such as drawing and painting.
“Really, this is an American movement actually, it started in the 1960S and then it exploded,” Buckman explained. “The artists said, ‘We want to create with this material and we want to make fine art.'”
Like other creative people, artists around the world saw what the Americans were doing and followed suit.
“So when you come to Imagine Museum, what you’re able to see is artists from around the world, inspired by Americans to take this material of glass and to create the beautiful sculpture you see in this museum,” said Buckman.
But glass art, that’s just for responsible adults and hands-off types, right? “Not so,” said Buckman. The Imagine Museum in St. Petersburg loves when children attend.
“People, for not very much money, can come in and have a wonderful experience,” Buckman shared.
