For only $5, anyone living in Hillsborough or Pasco County can visit the Museum and experience 34,000 sq ft of exquisite, contemporary glass art sculptures from around the world.
You might ask, What is glass art? In America, in the early 1960s some very creative artists determined they were going to make unique glass art sculptures outside of the factory setting where most glass items, up to this time, had been created for production or craft purposes.
These artists started a movement called “Studio Glass” that would take the world by storm encouraging other creatives to follow in their footsteps making sculptures in glass that would communicate their individual expressions and point of view. Dale Chihuly is certainly known for his participation in this movement, however, there were many others that contributed techniques, styles and innovations in glass that have guided this movement forward for the past 60 years.
Imagine Museum of glass has over 450 contemporary works on display that will blow you away by their size, expression, color and reflection. Learn more about our collection here. There are works from America, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, and Sweden to name a few. Our 2021 theme is entitled “Imagine the World” which will be possible as you walk through our 20 galleries of pure genius and beauty.
Grab a friend, take your visiting guests, or bring your kids on Saturday to experience our specially designed “Family Tours”. Plan now to take that trip over the bridge to come and experience Imagine Museum. We have guided tours Tuesday through Friday at 3 pm where you can learn more about the American Studio Glass Movement or the International glass artists who were influenced by the free spirit of the American artists.
Imagine, a destination that inspires, uplifts and brings joy when experienced for your summer pleasure. Friends from Hilsborough and Pasco Counties, the price is right, the parking is easy, the air is cooled and the art is hot.
