A View into the Cafesjian Art Trust Museum: What’s the blue building on Churchill St. in Shoreview?

Last week I had the opportunity to have a first look at Shoreview’s Cafesjian Art Trust Museum and it’s an exciting addition to our community. This museum houses the collection of former West Publishing executive and philanthropist Gerard Cafesjian. The museum features primarily glass art, including the work of Dale Chihuly. Within coming months, the museum will be open to the public through tours by appointment. In addition to the art, the museum also will feature a library on the arts. The facility includes an a floor to ceiling Chihuly chili pepper glass sculpture and two outdoor sculptures. You may know the Cafesjian name from the Cafesjian Carousel in St. Paul’s Como Park.
