Workers install sandstone from India on the entryway walls of the new James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art on Wednesday at 100 Central Ave. in St. Petersburg. A 20-foot-high waterfall, which will include scalloped granite, is being constructed in the background. The 84,000-square-foot museum is set to open in the spring and will be home to about 400 paintings, sculpture and American Indian jewelry acquired by Tom and Mary James during their 50 years of collecting. At right, a rendering shows the front of the museum.
