Yesterday, I took a break from beadwork to visit the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA. It was my first time visiting the museum, and it is lovely! Their current exhibit is called The Perfect Fit: Shoes Tell Stories and it features many wonderful artist-made shoes & art inspired by the shoe-making industry. I learned a couple of things while viewing this exhibit: 1) There was once a time when one in every 10 pairs of shoes in America was manufactured in Brockton, MA. 2) Thomas Edison chose Brockton to be one of the first cities in America to have electricity! To see more exhibits at the museum (and more beaded shoes!), please check my Flickr. Enjoy! 🙂
