The high heels got caught up in the latest winter storm, but they were finally delivered and there was still time to do a little surgery on them so they could fit on the bronze feet of the lady Tango Dancer in time to make it for the opening of the "Backwards and in High Heels" show at Featherstone Center for the Arts to celebrate Women's History Month.
After mounting the Tango Dancers on their new base they were loaded onto my old trailer with the help of family. One of the many benefits of living in a family compound.
Unloading at Featherstone was lot easier.
At the opening the Tango Dancers were in the center of the action.
Kate Handcock came up with the idea of the Red Bows. They conveniently covered up where I had to split the front of the shoes so they would fit over the bronze lady's feet.
Many thanks to Kenneth Cole for collaborating on this project. It definitely brought a splash of color and joy to a dreary and stormy March on Martha's Vineyard.
