Sole Purpose: The Shoe Call for Entries

Arts/Harmony Hall Regional Center

Arts/Harmony Hall invites artists of all ages and creative backgrounds to re-interpret the purpose, function, shape or meaning of the shoe. What other purpose could it have? What else could it do or be? Using a soon-to-be-discarded shoe as a starting point or creating one entirely from scratch, artists are given the challenge to re-construct, re-invent and re-design the shoe.
