Oct. 10: If These Shoes Could Talk

A Presentation and Conversation
with Phoenix Art Museum Docent Debbie Ray


Shoes, although inanimate objects, have silently witnessed world events for centuries. Come explore the role that shoes played during the High Renaissance and Baroque time periods (c. 1500-1700).
Experience the impact that shoes made on social order, royal rule, fashion trends, and culture. We will highlight works of art that are found at Phoenix Art Museum, so put on your walking shoes and join us on this journey! Wear or bring your favorite pair of shoes!
