Aren’t these shoes amazing works of art?

The Movers & Makers exhibit is now at the Museum of Art & History (MOAH) in Lancaster. The show features functional art. I attended the opening night festivities and enjoyed the art and mingling with artists and patrons.

Once I headed upstairs to the room housing the Chris Francis: Shoe Versatility exhibit, it was obvious that this was the place for me. Each shoe is beautiful on it’s own, but to experience a whole room full of them was wonderful.

The shoes are one of a kind and functional. This is art that makes a big, bold statement when worn. Custom shoes have been made for celebrity rockers including Lita Ford, Mick Mars of Motley Crue and Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols.

I told Chris that they were beautiful, but I didn’t think I’d be able to walk in them, let alone dance around on a stage wearing such high heels. He tried to assure me that with the platforms and a custom fit shoe, it was much easier than it looks. I can definitely see why performers want these eye catching shoes.

Chris’s personal life has taken a lot of twists and turns. He’s traveled the US on freight trains and worked on ships, as a chimney sweep and at carnivals and cabarets. These life experiences have enhanced his vision as an artist. The results are beautiful!

    Any one that knows me; knows how much I love shoes. These deserve recognition in such a museum. They are very unique and exotic. They may not get you through your errands or 9 to 5 but they are all show stoppers!!!

    I went to the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto and really enjoyed it. This would be a great one to also see.

    Such fun to look at but can’t even imagine what it would be like to wear any of these.

    I would enjoy visiting here just for the mere artistic designs. Would not wear any of them at my age tho.

    These are some fascinating shoes. It is hard to imagine anyone walking in them, much less performing in them.
