Things to Do Planner: Dancing With the Stars, dinosaurs at MOSI and a 3-D arty party

 

OFF THE WALL: Visual Mayhem 3-D art party

 

The Bloom Art Center in downtown St. Petersburg will hand out 3-D glasses for its arty party on Saturday called Visual Mayhem, a night of eye-popping, multidimensional murals, live music, live screen printing, open artist studios, a donation bar and a book shop. The $5 admission includes 3-D glasses and a maze of artwork by nearly a dozen local artists. Some of the 2-foot and 4-foot panels from the murals created for the show will be for sale, managing partner Mitzi Gordon said. Set in the right light, she said, you can have the 3D experience at home. It's not a matter of special paint, but technique. "It's how you apply the colors," said Gordon, who, along with partner muralist James Oleson, made over the nondescript St. Petersburg warehouse almost two years ago into what's become like a community art center. "The blues will sink into the background and the reds and warm colors will pop forward. So the way the artist uses the paint creates the 3-D effect," Gordon said. There will be some black-light areas of the gallery but often it merely takes dim lighting and 3-D glasses to make the art come off the wall, she said. 910 Fifth Ave. N, St. Petersburg. 6-11 p.m. Saturday. (352) 777-3723.

 

FANCY FOOTWORK: Dancing With the Stars Live

 

The dance pros that showed America the right way to pull off sambas, salsas and pasodobles will bring their fancy footwork to Dancing With the Stars Live, a tour of the show's professional dancers including Lindsay Arnold, Sharna Burgess, Artem Chigvintsev, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Keo Motsepe, Peta Murgatroyd, Emma Slater and more at Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall. The spangled spectacle has been so popular with Tampa Bay audiences that there will be two 90-minute shows Saturday at 5 and 8 p.m. The show promises to include choreography never shown on Dancing With the Stars, as well as some of the most memorable numbers from show. $38.75-$78.75.

JURASSIC SPARK: Dinosaurs in Motion

 

A four-month visit by an interactive dinosaur exhibit aims to teach both kinetics and art when it opens Saturday at Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry. Called Dinosaurs in Motion the exhibit will give kids a prehistoric playground of gears and levers to take control of life-size, massive metal skeletons, including a 44-foot-long T. rex. (shown above). Users will be able to snap the jaws of a T. rex, flap the fins of a Plesiosaur and design interactive sculptures in a "maker space" of hands-on activities. The steel sculptures will allow visitors to watch the mechanical parts at work as the dinosaurs move. The exhibition runs through May 8 and is included with MOSI admission, $22.95, $20.95 seniors, $18.95 ages 6-12, 5 and younger free. 4801 E Fowler Ave., Tampa. (813) 987-6000. mosi.org.
