New museum with rare collection of glass art opens in Shoreview

One of the most extensive and finest collections of contemporary glass sculptures in the world is on display at a new museum in Shoreview. The free museum taps into the 3000 piece collection of local businessman and philanthropist, Gerard Cafesjian. The first exhibit highlights Cafesjian’s 30-year friendship with master glass artist, Dale Chihuly. It’s the first time the private collection is all in one place and on view for the public. The Cafesjian Art Trust is open for guided tours, Thursday through Saturday. Even though it is free to visit, guests must make a reservation ahead of time online or by calling the museum. It’s located on Churchill St. near the intersection of Lexington Avenue and County Road 96.
