With Cranberry Red Persian Wall behind him, glass artist Dale Chihuly takes in the popular exhibit of his work. Chihuly lost an eye to a car accident in 1976.
After a phenomenal 19-week run, "Chihuly Across Florida: Masterworks in Glass'' has closed at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg. An estimated 150,000 visitors toured the exhibition of massive glass sculptures and installations, including several thousand school children. Even though the work has been sent back to Chihuly's Seattle studio, you can continue to visit the show at this website.

Dale Chihuly, the most famous glass artist in the world, brought his extravagant, flamboyant sculptures and installations to the Museum of Fine Arts. The galleries and gardens were filled with examples of Chihuly's most celebrated work including the monumental sculptures built from hundreds of pieces of individually blown glass.
