“Walk This Way: Historic Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection” 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. Featuring 100 pairs of shoes from iconic designer Stuart Weitzman’s extensive private collection assembled over three decades with his wife Jane Gershon Weitzman, the exhibition covers larger trends in American economic history, from industrialization to the rise of consumer culture, with a focus on women’s contributions as producers, consumers, designers, and entrepreneurs.
Guided tours of this very special exhibit are offered on Wednesdays only at 12 p.m.
NOTE: Large bags, backpacks and strollers are not permitted. $18, adults; $10, youth (ages 13-17); $3, children (ages 6-12); children under 6 free.
Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday, noon-5 p.m.; closed Mondays.
