Fancy footwear at Philadelphia Airport

Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is presenting a new exhibit titled:

Sharon Taffet: Fanciful Footwear.

“…[I]nspired by Philadelphia author Jennifer Weiner, who wrote ‘In Her Shoes,’ Taffet began to create a series of embellished, one-of-a-kind footwear. Using only a single shoe or boot – never working with pairs – she thematically decorates and adorns them with fun items such as costume jewelry, feathers, artificial fruit and foliage, shells, candy, playing cards and dice. Decorated with a variety of different textures, patterns and colors, a regular store-bought shoe is transformed into a sculptural work of art. Each shoe is fanciful and whimsical and provides viewers with a decorative delight.”

Sharon Taffet: Fanciful Footwear will be on display in Terminal D through February 2012.
