COLLECTIONS NEWS: Shoes

Did you know the Henry Art Gallery has over 500 pairs of shoes in its permanent collection?

Last week, UW professor Layne Goldsmith brought her ART 272: Introduction to Sculpture class to the Henry’s Reed Collection Study Center to look at a selection of incredible shoes from the museum’s  collection.

After choosing their favorite pair of shoes for inspiration, students are now working to design a creative enclosure in which one could hold, display, or protect shoes.

To see more shoes in the Henry’s collection search “footwear” in the Online Collections Database. Have fun exploring!
