I have never been able to experience large sculpture like this. Truly an education. A very talented artist and happy Jon could bring something like this to our area.

Newer museum to St. Pete, worth the visit. Especially good if you get the artist himself, Jon Hair, to give hids personal tour.

My friend and I visited this incredible museum. The artist is present and gave us a personal tour. The works of art are colossal. Many of these sculptures grace prestigious colleges, Air Force Museum and Olympic Training Center. Not to be missed.
