"Found Bound ReBound" Shoe Drive

Last April 2015 I collected about 150 pairs of bound shoes at the FABNYC
Load Out repurposing workshop. It was fun and productive but I still have a long way to go.
I will be collecting shoes from now until Jan 30 2016

The Project
My Goal is to collect 1000 pairs of shoes.
I will exhibit them in Manila

next year at http://drawingroomgallery.com
( link to my recent show http://drawingroomgallery.com/art-fair/cige-2015/

After the exhibition we will unbind the shoes and donate them through a charitable organization in Manila to the Haiyan typhoon victims

Stay tuned for Shoe Binding workshop/parties at Bliss on Bliss
