'The Shoe Must Go On!," ends on the 29th August at the Morris Museum in Morris Township, New Jersey. The exhibition explores centuries of shoe design and presents shoes from many different "walks" of life. Recently added to the exhibits is a pair of boots worn by Gen. David Petraeus. Also shoes worn by George Martin (formerly of New York Giants . George walked over 3,000 miles using 27 pairs of shoes to raise $2 million for medical care for the first responders to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He walked from New York City's George Washington Bridge to San Diego. There too is the art quilt “Fancy Footwork” by Madeleine Appell. The quilt represents a range of shoe styles that the artist has found aesthetic, unique, and well-designed.
