This Week I read about an exhibition: The Rise of Sneaker Culture. Yes! I love my sneakers. And now sneakers occupy museums. Love it! The Brookyln Museum presents the exhibition. Yes, it’s in New York. The big apple has so many interesting museums, last time I visited NY I went to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, it was really fascinating and sooooo big! But that’s another story…
Back to sneakers!
Sneakers have long been loved as a staple of casual fashion, transcending gender, age, and socioeconomic categories to become the footwear of choice for millions across the globe. The Rise of Sneaker Culture is the first exhibition in North America to tell the sneaker’s complex and fascinating story—from its beginnings in the mid-nineteenth century to its emergence in the present day as a cultural icon.
The selection of the exhibition is richly contextualized with film footage, interactive media, photographic images, and design drawings, creating a backdrop of the social history, technical innovation, fashion trends, and marketing campaigns that shaped the sneaker form over the past century and a half.
I’ve got one wish right now: Put on my new sneakers and run! 😀
