Intricate glass shapes and detail can be seen atop one of the pieces in the Sealife Stoppers exhibition at the Chihuly Collection.

Now that we have entered the season of clouds and rain, the perfect color fix on a gray day can be found in the Chihuly Collection, 400 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg. It's a small jewel on the downtown waterfront, packed with vibrant installations by world-famous glass artist Dale Chihuly. This is an especially good time for a visit because a collection of vessels titled Sealife Stoppers, which has been on temporary display, on loan from Chihuly, will depart after June 30. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $14.95 adults, $13.95 seniors, $10.95 children and students, free to children 5 and younger. (727) 896-4527; moreanartscenter.org.
