A Really Big Shoe Show

A shoe-themed exhibition presenting the work of over thirty Virginia artists.

This very unique show highlights the history of the Riverviews building—a former shoe warehouse—while providing our viewers with a truly distinctive and contemporary exhibition.
Part of the Year of the SHOE.

A Really Big Shoe Show brings together an extensive variety of styles. Artists were asked to create work that used the shoe as either subject or medium. The response to this proposal was immense and diverse with painting, photography, print-making, ceramics, textiles, digital media, installation pieces as well as performance. Many of these artists have ties to Riverviews as previous artists or building residents while some are exhibiting their work for the very first time.
