My other project this week was working on some art for the museum gift shop for the opening of their new exhibit, The Perfect Fit: Shoes Tell Stories. I will be touring school groups through this exhibit in the next few weeks. I think the children will really like this exhibit as there are many artist depictions of shoes, one of my favorite pair is a pair of black pumps with swimming fins on the front, these are made of paper mache, but look like rubber.
The Perfect Fit Shoe Shrine
The three shoe shrines I created were started with 3 gold Christmas ornaments I bought last weekend at an Estate Sale, and a childrens book with a 3D character, whose feet I had to cut off for his shoes! The rest of the items I had in my stash of stuff, old jewlery, beads, a miniature ice skate, miniature cowboy boot and miniature pair of wooden shoes and a tassel.
