Dietrich's Eyes: Converse - Spark Creativity Exhibit

I always pass by the Gateway Mall every time I go to office or when I go home since I ride the LRT Purple Lane.

Last week I got a chance to see an exhibit by different colleges and universities which features Converse shoes. Since I was already apprehended by mall guards when I took pictures of the mall last new year, I asked permission with them If I can take picture of the exhibit. The guard informed me that since that is a public exhibit, I can take pictures as long as it is the exhibit I'm going to shoot.

The exhibit features artworks from different schools such as University of Sto. Tomas, University of the Philippines, University of the East and many more. More of the artworks were made out of shoe materials like outsoles, shoe box, old shoes, shoe lace and paint.

Here's what the schools have showcased to present their talent in art and recycling:

University of the Philippines Integrated School

ShoeperHerollercoaster Boom of UP College of Fine Arts

Space Race of Asia Pacific College

Kostka School Inc.

Notre Dame of Greater Manila

And my favorite...

Pegashoes of University of Sto. Tomas

  1. I have always thought that Converse shoes were an art all themselves. I really like the idea though, of making art with them!
