Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture

Following our visit to UofL’s Hite Institute, Ms. Wilhoit and I accompanied students to the newly reopened Speed Art Museum to check out the exhibition Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture. Students participate annually in the VANS Custom Culture Competition, so this show was a must-see for us! We learned about the history of sneaker design, and gained inspiration for this year’s contest. Afterwards, students had time to explore the Speed’s permanent collection. For many students, this was their first visit to an art museum. Viewing original works of art allowed them to analyze and describe what they were saw-the key to understanding art’s visual narrative!
