Smithsonian Steps Out (Spotlight Smithsonian)

Chapter One

Smithsonian Steps Out

The Smithsonian has been called "The Nation's Attic" because its collections are so eclectic and so vast. But it might just as easily be called "The Nation's Closet" for all the shoes, shoe accessories, and shoe imagery it holds. Where can you see all kinds of footwear from Dorothy's ruby slippers to Superman's boots, beaded moccasins to ceramic cowboy boots, a Tuareg anklet from Africa to a lunar overshoe from the Apollo space mission? From heels to high tops, fringed leggings to Olympic ice skates, Manolo Blahnik mules to Celia Cruz's sling backs—the Smithsonian has it all. Among the wealth of items in its collections are many treasures for those fascinated by footwear. But with seventeen museums and a zoo in Washington, D.C., two museums in New York City, various research centers, and more than 137 million objects in all, the Smithsonian can be overwhelming—even for those who have the opportunity to come often. Smithsonian Steps Out offers a selection of unique items from the collections and allows you to see them as no other visitor can. In these pages you can experience highlights from the exhibits as well as see lesser-known items that are seldom on view. Jump from Sonja Henie's ice skates at the National Museum of American History to shoe-shaped matchsafes at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Find a shoe drawing by Wayne Thiebaud at the Archives of American Art along with 1970s platform shoes from the Anacostia Community Museum. Enjoy the world's largest museum, cultural, and scientific complex without planning a trip, fighting thecrowds, or wearing down the soles of your sneakers. And return as often as you like.
