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.
