THE FAMILY TREE OF CONTEMPORARY

GLASS FINE ART IN AMERICA

OPENING FALL 2017

VISION

Vivien Wang – Cat

“Imagine” is to create a possible future. “Museum” is a home of Muses, the sources of inspiration.

Imagine Museum is a haven for new visions, a destination for those who seek more richly imagined outcomes.

The Museum works to attract, preserve, document and show the finest examples of visionary art in glass and other media. Its programs support the articulation of dreams common to youth, to the living artist, to pioneers of knowledge. It is a friend of groups with similar goals.

Imagine Museum supports the artist, the viewer, and the collector. Artists create truth, and Imagine Museum seeks for the artist in everyone to prevail.

WHAT IS IMAGINE MUSEUM?

Taylor – Magnifying Hyperbole

A recently founded charitable institution in the up-andcoming Warehouse District of St. Petersburg. Its permanent collection shows the growth of the contemporary glass movement in America since 1960.

WHAT DOES THE IMAGINE MUSEUM COLLECTION CONSIST OF?

Lino Tagliapetra – Mandrada

It represents an historical Family Tree of the American Studio Glass Movement from the 1960’s to the present. This 55-year phenomenon is represented by 55 prominent glass artists who exemplify its vitality. The collection comprises almost 500 extraordinary works that highlight the connections and influences among studio glass pioneers through to the present.

WHAT WILL BE THE IMAGINE MUSEUM’S INVOLVEMENT WITH THE ADJACENT COMMUNITY AND ST. PETE?

Raven Skyriver – Mother

Its prime intention is to help expand the flourishing arts communities on the Gulf Coast. The hope is to add a unique dimension of scholarship, interactive participation, high standards of quality, and a focus on children and our future as these may be helped to flourish through an understanding of aesthetics.

WHAT ARE THE PLANS FOR THE EXTERIOR PROPERTY SURROUNDING THE MUSEUM?

Beside ample parking, specially designed outdoor venues and reception areas, murals and landscaping are being developed.
