If the Shoe Fits: Fashion, Function, Footwear

The Peterborough Museum & Archives (PMA), in partnership with the students in the Fleming College Museum Management & Curatorship (MMC) program, presents this exhibition which examines both historic and modern shoes, highlighting selections from the PMA's shoe collection. Whether we're wearing heels on the dance floor or using work boots for safety in a factory, our shoes are a necessity. Through the lens of footwear, this exhibit will explore a variety of themes and landscapes including the home, the field, and the factory. So grab your favourite pair of shoes and boogie on up to see this temporary exhibit that explores the role footwear plays in our lives. 

The MMC program has been collaborating with the PMA for over twenty years. The annual exhibition displays the students' eight-month learning process and prepares them for their future endeavors as museum professionals. Come celebrate the culmination of their efforts and learn how footwear and its industry have influenced and reflected how the people of Peterborough relate to and engage with their world.
