Standing Tall: The Curious History of Men in Heels – A Walk and Talk with the Curator
Join Senior Curator Elizabeth Semmelhack for an intimate evening in our new exhibition!
While the thought of a man in heels is met with disbelief and amazement, invoking images of indiscretion and being different, it hasn’t always been that way. Men have historically worn heels, so why don’t they wear them today? Especially since height is currently connected to everything from higher pay to increased desirability. Join Elizabeth in the gallery as she explores this question and others and then continue the conversation afterwards over a glass of wine. Don’t miss the only scheduled opportunity to see this fascinating exhibition with the curator!
