The Haute Sea in Phoenix This Wednesday

Great art is part of any great urban environment. Phoenix has many great artistic organizations and museums but it’s natural to look to Phoenix Art Museum for inspiration.

This Wednesday, Dennita Sewell, Curator of Fashion Design at Phoenix Art Museum will speak about The Sea, an exhibit based on the sea’s influence on fashion. Sort of ironic here in a desert city. The exhibit, which opened March 3, promises a variety of designed from “cumbersome wool costumes of the 1900s and the sleek modern interpretations of Coco Chanel’s glamorous days on the Riviera, to contemporary couture as recent as Spring 2012 by designers such as Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel.”

If you’d like to learn more, Ms. Sewell will give a  free talk, Tales from the Haute Sea, this Wednesday, March 21 at 7pm. Museum admission is free this evening and you’ll find delightful, locally produced food and wine for sale in the museum Café, Palette.
