In My Shoes: Stories about Life, Told from the Bottom Up

January 28, 2012 - June 15, 2012

Shoes do more than protect our feet—they hold memories; they can represent who you are, how you’ve changed, or who you hope to become.  In My Shoes shares the journeys, large and small, funny and poignant, of individuals from across the region. 

Some of the shoes in this exhibit are worn out, with creased leather and gaping holes.  They have hiked through forests, climbed up mountains, and worked until they are threadbare and thin-soled. Others are pristine and cherished—saved for only special occasions.  Our shoes remind us of our sorrows and our triumphs.  What would you learn by walking in the shoes of another person?
