BAL HARBOUR– Bal Harbour Shops is making moves into the art world with the opening of The Fashion Project, a series of rotating exhibits that focuses on fashion and the world surrounding it, as curated by famed exhibition maker Judith Clark. (Here's our in-depth synopsis). The first exhibit opens this Friday, April 10, and focuses on fashion exploration through the years, from a 1913 ballet costume to a futuristic remote control dress. A Racked tipster revealed that Judith herself would be offering free tours on opening day from noon to 4pm, which you can score here. Act fast though– there's only a limited amount! Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Avenue, Bal Harbour, FL.

SOUTH BEACH– The spotlight has been on Miami City Ballet since January, when we announced that famed choreographer Justin Peck had created a 35-minute production for the company titled Heatscape, set in front of a Shepard Fairey designed backdrop. Well, you can catch the production this weekend at the Arsht Center during MCB's Points of Departure program, which brings the ballet season to a close. Tickets are $20, and the show starts at 8pm on Friday and Saturday, and at 2pm on Sunday.
