#WDUS4       What Do You Stand For?

Led by artists Jeffery Weatherford and Carlisha Watkins, this project uses the metaphor of feet and shoes to allow visitors to the opportunity to creatively and thoughtfully reflect on what they themselves value, stand for, and deem most important. Visitors will work with the artists to create a mural of footprints to be displayed through February, alongside the artists' Foot Soldiers mixed media shoe exhibit.
