More Information

The Taubman Museum of Art is pleased to present the exhibition Art & Sole: Fantasy Shoes from the Jane Gershon Weitzman Collection, featuring inventive examples of fantasy art shoes chosen from the Weitzman collection that are remarkable for their imaginative construction and elaborate adornment. Each delicate shoe is constructed from unexpected materials such as bronze, ceramic, wire, Plexiglas, and corrugated cardboard. Jane Gershon Weitzman, who served as executive vice president of Stuart Weitzman and first vice president of Stuart Weitzman Retail, invited hundreds of artists to make these shoes for their Madison Avenue window displays, which later inspired her book, Art & Sole. This exhibition is curated by Jane Gershon Weitzman.
