The Bula Barua Gallery and The Cordova Inn are proudly partnering to bring guests a dynamic artistic experience curated by local artist and gallery owner, Bula Barua. Bula creates luxurious original artworks using traditional and innovative materials, including blown glass, gemstones, Swarovski crystals and 24k gold leaf. In collaboration with the Cordova, the artist has chosen a series of artworks to be displayed throughout the hotel at 253 2nd Ave N, St. Petersburg, FL 33701.
Bula selected each piece to compliment the unique character of the Cordova, which has been well known in St. Petersburg for over seven decades. Historic and filled with character, the hotel boasts the same service as was originally provided in the 1920’s while being located in a 21st century city with ever-growing options for restaurants, museums, and nightlife. To fit this atmosphere, the artworks allude to the luxuriousness of the 1920s while bringing a fresh and contemporary point of view.
This partnership has given both parties the exciting opportunity to introduce contemporary fine art into unexpected places. Ten percent of all works sold from the hotel will be donated to DMG School Project to benefit young creatives. Thank you for including us in your visit.
