In My Shoes: Stores about Life, Told from the Bottom Up: New Exhibition
"In My Shoes: Stores about Life, Told from the Bottom Up." Is an exhibit at a Central Washington University museum tells life stories of Kittitas County residents through their footwear. 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 cherishe, saved only for special occasions. The exhibition includes boots worn by a miner, black heels worn by a woman who escaped from Iran, tennis shoes worn by a little boy who died.
"In My Shoes: Stores about Life, Told from the Bottom Up." Is open now and closes on June 15, 2012.
