South Mountain Environmental Education Center
10409 South Central Ave.
Phoenix, AZ 85042
Join Angela Ellsworth, Director and Co-Founder of Museum of Walking, on a contemplative walk where we tell stories about our shoes. This walk is in honor of Fluxus artist Alison Knowles and her score titled Shoes of Your Choice. This will be a contemplative walk that focuses on the shoes that we wear, the role that they play in our lives, and the stories that are carried along with them.
This walk will take place at South Mountain Park (Phoenix) during Silent Sunday where all park roads are closed to motorized vehicles. We will meet at South Mountain Environmental Education Center. We encourage you to wear a pair of shoes you favor, have a story about, or that have played a significant role in your life. After a mindful walk we will share the story of our shoes!
NOTE: Drive through first “stop point” and follow directions to South Mountain Environmental Education Center. Park in the large parking lot on the left and walk up to SMEEC to meet us (look for MoW hats and/or signage).
This walk is inspired by a studio visit and conversation with Fluxus artist Alison Knowles in July 2018.
Shoes of Your Choice
A member of the audience is invited to come forward to a microphone if one is available and describe a pair of shoes, the one he is wearing or another pair. He is encouraged to tell where he got them, the size, color, why he likes them, etc.
-Alison Knowles, 1963
