The School of Design in the College of Visual and Performing Arts has a long history of graduates working within the footwear industry. This exhibition showcases these talented designers’ experiences, philosophies, and approaches to footwear design. Included are product examples ranging from athletic gear to designer shoes to specialized equipment for space capsule missions. The designers represent a wide network of industry from brands that include Nike, New Balance, Clarks, Under Armour and numerous others.

Organized by Professor Don Carr and Assistant Professor Carmel Nicoletti, the exhibition features the work of over 20 designers representing over 50 years of alumni from the School of Design’s industrial and interaction design (IID) program in conversation with current IID students, who were tasked with researching and interviewing the participating alumni to inform the creation of shoeboxes meant to reflect the personality and process for each designer.

A reception will be held on Friday, February 24, from 6-8 p.m. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m., or by appointment.
