Art and Sole

May 20th – Jun 30th

  • Admission22.50
  • Time10:00 AM to 12:00 AM
Art & Sole will feature shoes painted, beaded, and styled by more than a dozen Native artists. The shoe pairs will be on display alongside other works by the same artists, in mediums within which they commonly create. In this way, the exhibition will demonstrate how the artists’ visual language and distinctive styles translate across different forms, underscoring that artists are not bound or limited to a specific medium or style. Art & Sole will illustrate the innovation and creativity of these artists, and how their creations and concepts intersect with other cultures and the community at large.

The shoes and many of the additional works will be drawn directly from the Heard Museum’s permanent collection, including works by Virgil Ortiz (Cochiti Pueblo), Susan Folwell (Santa Clara Pueblo), Teri Greeves (Kiowa), Jason Garcia (Santa Clara Pueblo Tewa), Jennifer Tafoya (Santa Clara Pueblo) and more. Many of the shoes being featured in the exhibition were acquired as a generous gift from Charles King.
