Dali and Schiaparelli opens, the Shine mural festival closes

In Daring Fashion: Dalí and Schiaparelli

Italian designer Elsa Schiaparelli, regarded as fashion's forefront designer of the 1920s and '30s in Paris, was known for her bold aesthetic and exquisite workmanship. Her designs were heavily influenced by the surrealists, particularly Salvador Dalí, with whom she often collaborated. That relationship is the subject of "Dalí and Schiaparelli," which opens Wednesday at the Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg. The exhibit features haute couture gowns, accessories and jewelry, paintings, photos and more, as well as new designs by Bertrand Guyon for Maison Schiaparelli. The museum has teamed up with Dress for Success Tampa Bay to accept donations of new or gently used handbags, scarves, belts and jewelry during the entirety of the exhibit, which ends Jan. 14. Attendees will receive $2 off admission on the day they make the donation. 1 Dalí Blvd. thedali.org.

In anticipation of the exhibition, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, there will be Fashion + Art Luncheon at the Renaissance Vinoy Sunset Ballroom (600 Snell Isle Blvd. NE, St. Petersburg). It features a panel discussion by creators and curators of the exhibition. Tickets are $100. On Saturday, the Dalí Museum will host a black tie gala featuring a fashion show with contemporary Schiaparelli designs. The event runs from 6 to 11:30 p.m., and tickets are $1,500. Find tickets for both at thedali.org/schiaparelli-weekend-details.

Shine On: Outside In

Maybe you've noticed the walls becoming more colorful this week in St. Petersburg, thanks to the Shine Mural Festival. Sixteen local, national and international artists have been making their marks throughout the city since Oct. 5. (Find a map at shineonstpete.com.) The festival culminates Saturday with the "Outside In" exhibit in the Warehouse Arts District. The exhibit features large-scale installation from artists including past Shine participant Ricky Watts and current Shine artists Yok and Sheryo, as well as large-scale paintings by a number of local and national artists. Other festivities include a Carmada of art cars, live screen printing of limited-edition Shine T-shirts, DJ music, food trucks and a cash bar. Free. 5-10 p.m. at Behar Peteranecz Architecture, 2430 Terminal Drive S.

Powerful Imagery: Aftermath

We're all aware of the conflicts that have erupted in the Middle East over the last 15 years, which is the stage on which the Ringling Museum of Art's "Aftermath: The Fallout of War — America and the Middle East" is set. Sure, we're inundated with images on TV and the internet, but viewing them through an artist's lens drives their urgency home even more. The exhibit, which opens Sunday, features photography and video art from artists active in the United States and Middle East, depicting the conditions and people caught in the aftermath of war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Palestine, Israel and the United States. 5401 Bay Shore Road, Sarasota. ringling.org.
