Sole Mates: Cowboy Boots and Art has been one kick of a show! At the opening, on May 15, we asked visitors to “Show Us Your Boots!” Little did we know that 112 boot wearers would show us their stuff. We are processing all the photos taken by Ellen Zieselman, Education Curator, and putting them up on our website. With this blog entry, we begin. Over the next few days, I will continue to post the boots and their wearers’ boot stories. Check out them out on the Show Us page
We want you to join us for the fun and Sole Mates; fresh look at art in New Mexico. We will have a series of great events over the summer, in conjunction with the Sole Mates show, so check back with our website for details. You can also sign up for our e-newsletter for announcements of events.
And yes, we will host more “Show Us Your Boots” events, and at that point, we plan to move the pictures to Flickr, so we can see boots and hear stories from around the world.
