Exhibition Lecture - Walk This Way: Historic Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection

Friday, January 31, 2020 @ 3:00pm
Henry Morrison Flagler Museum

In conjunction with our Winter Exhibition, Walk This Way: Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection of Historic Shoes, Valerie Paley, Director of the Center for Women’s History at the New-York Historical Society Museum and Library, will moderate a conversation between designer Stuart Weitzman and philanthropist Jane Gershon Weitzman, to explore the couple’s spectacular and historical shoe collection.

Walk This Way: Historic Footwear from the Stuart Weitzman Collection explores how shoes have transcended their utilitarian purpose to become representations of culture — coveted as objects of desire, designed with artistic consideration, and expressing complicated meanings of femininity, power, and aspiration for women and men alike. Featuring 100 pairs of shoes from iconic designer Stuart Weitzman’s extensive private collection assembled over three decades with his wife Jane Gershon Weitzman, the exhibition covers larger trends in American economic history, from industrialization to the rise of consumer culture, with a focus on women’s contributions as producers, consumers, designers, and entrepreneurs.

This exhibition has been organized by the New-York Historical Society. The winter exhibition is funded in part by Northern Trust, Templeton & Company, and The Palm Beach Post.
