Gagosian Gallery NYC: Shoes as Canvas

Museums Galleries Stepping up for Art

A 16-year-old art world progeny with well-placed parents spearheaded “Stepping Up for Art” a fund-raising exhibition for arts programs in NYC schools.

India Wolf collaborated with Gagosian Gallery, on Madison Avenue, and Charlotte Olympia, a non-profit organization, to enlist twenty contemporary artists to customize Olympia’s iconic “Dolly” platform heel shoes.  Each artist put their own stylish stamp on the shoes.

Studio in a School, which brings visual arts to under-funded New York City public schools, also invited children from their partnering schools to put their own spin on the shoes.

To see ten examples from the exhibit, go to:
