Associate Professor of Theater Christine McDowell’s has curated Museum L-A 's shoe exhibition.Museum L-A’s gallery is filled to the brim with shoes for its newest exhibit “Footwear: From Function to Fashion.” The exhibit explores the whimsy and artfulness that shoe designs have played with for decades to acknowledge that shoes, while primarily used as an often-forgotten functional item, can be masterpieces in their own right. A certain focus is placed on the extensive history of the shoe industry in Auburn, once the fifth largest producer of footwear in the country, through a timeline representing the ebb and flow of the local companies historically making shoes in our community. This exhibit is Museum L-A’s next step in the progression of telling this industry’s story – this time focusing on the product that was being created by the millions right in our little corner of Maine while also creating an opportunity to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the City of Auburn, 1869-2019.
