I think I can safely predict a Black-Friday type stampede Jan. 30 when 19 pairs of women’s Icon shoes go on sale at Boswell-Mourot in the Art and Soles fundraiser for the Arkansas Arts Center’s Friends of Contemporary Craft. I just hope no one is hurt in the melee.
Here’s what will be available: Munro women’s clogs imprinted with pictures of graffiti from around the U.S. (8 in size 6 medium, 1 in size 6.5 medium, 3 in size 7 medium, 6 in size 8, 1 in size 8.5, $100) and athletic shoes (men’s size 8 or 6 pairs of women’s size 10); wall art by street artist Woozel, ceramics by Beth Lambert decorated by Woozel, and hand-painted T-shirts by student artists. The event runs from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the gallery at 5815 Kavanaugh (I’m guessing shoe-coveters will assemble way before then) and admission is free. There will be libations and hors d’oeuvres, but they’ll go untouched until the shoe fight is over.
