Best exhibit for purse shopping: HORST PHOTOGRAPHS at THE DALI

Best exhibit for purse shopping

I have but one regret: that I did not buy the red and white striped replica of the purse seen on one of the Horst Vogue covers exhibited at the Dali this summer. Like the Disney & Dali exhibit before it, the show devoted to this visionary fashion and portrait photographer proved once again how art weaves itself into every corner of our culture. As strange as it sounds to say this about a museum that trucks in the surreal, at the Dali they’re keeping it real. One Dali Blvd., St. Petersburg, thedali.org. —Cathy Salustri
