Laura Fiser from the Paine Art Center and Gardens in Oshkosh will share highlights from the museum’s summer 2021 exhibition, Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes. Featuring 100 pairs of striking shoes and more than a century of shoe design, the exhibition is drawn from the extensive private collection of high-fashion shoe designer Stuart Weitzman and his wife, Jane Gershon Weitzman. Assembled over three decades, their collection of “inspiration shoes” explores how shoes have transcended their utilitarian purpose to become representations of culture—coveted as objects of desire, designed with artistic consideration, and expressing complicated meanings of femininity, power, and aspiration for women and men alike. From silk boudoir shoes created for the 1867 Paris Exposition to the red carpet’s “Million Dollar Sandals,” every shoe tells a story.
