Upcoming Events at the Petterson Museum
"Stepping Out in Style"
Exhibit opens mid September, 2013
Publius Syrus in 42 B.C.E. said “You cannot put the same shoe on every foot.” This exhibit will explore the countless ways human beings have designed and worn footwear all over our planet. Over 100 historic and contemporary shoes, boots, sandals, slippers, stockings—many from the Petterson’s significant collection of historic Chinese costume will be on display. How does walking a mile in another person’s shoes give you a different perspective? Come and find out! The exhibit will run from mid-September through Thanksgiving weekend.
