When I visited Atlanta last month, The High Museum of Art’s current exhibit at the time was The Rise of Sneaker Culture. The exhibit went in-depth about how sneakers went from being just an athletic necessity to a becoming a culture in its own right.
Growing up, our household wasn’t crazy about sports. The only time it mattered to my family was when the Olympics/Fifa World Cup was on.
However, I’m always up for learning new things and seeing things from a different perspective. I mean, if people line up for miles when a new shoe comes out and might literally KILL for it, there’s gotta be something to it.
Sadly, the exhibit ended at the High Museum on August 14th, but they are making a few more stops in other cities. You can check out the dates and locations on the American Federation of Arts website.
Definitely an exhibit that’s fun for the whole family. A little history lesson fused with sports? Perfect combination!
Here are some of the photos from the exhibit. Enjoy!
