From the Bata Museum: Roger Vivier for German tannery Heyl-Libenau, French, 1934
Frocktalkers, if you love shoes (really? Like who wouldn’t love shoes?!) you are going to LOVE this. The Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto has a fabulous website, and they have PODCASTS all about shoes – famous peoples’ shoes, historical shoes, unusual shoes, I mean, WOAH. It’s pretty incredible. Thanks to Frocktalker Haleh for alerting me to this. I need to grab my earbuds and get listening! Enjoy!!
That’s right – the artwork, sketches, and general genius of Tim Burton are making their way around our globe, thanks in part to New York’s MOMA and exhibit curators Ron Magliozzi, Jenny He and Rajendra Roy. Next stop: Australia! The exhibit opens today at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne. The exhibit will come to Toronto’s Bell Lightbox at the Toronto Film Festival on September 12 (to coincide with the Toronto Film Festival). And then… Los Angeles! LACMA will host the exhibit from May 29, 2011 to October 31, 2011; wouldn’t Jack Skellington be proud!?! More info from the LA Times HERE!
