The Perfect Fit

Through April 3 @ Kimball Art Center

Seldom do you find yourself with names like Manolo Blahnik and Salvador Dalí dancing through your mind in unison. Any fashion-conscious guy or gal knows an amazing pair of shoes when they see one, and the shoes on display at Kimball Art Center in Park City are no exception.

The Perfect Fit boasts dozens of shoes in every medium imaginable—from bronze and porcelain to bicycle parts and golf tees. More than 100 artists from across the globe show how their shoe creations represent gender, history, race, comedy and culture. Pieces include 14-inch wooden stilettos with straps constructed from saw blades, and a pair of platform shoes made entirely of grapefruit and cantaloupe peels. This week is your last chance to catch the exhibit, so whether you clamber up Main Street in ski boots or descend gracefully down the sidewalk in heels, get your feet to Park City and experience footwear and art in a whole new way.

The Perfect Fit: Shoes Tell the Stories @ Kimball Art Center, 638 Park Ave., Park City, 435-649-8882, through April 3, free. KimballArtCenter.org
