No Puedo Imaginar Mi Vida Sin Ti, CU Experience Gallery, May 8-June 30

No Puedo Imaginar Mi Vida Sin Ti draws attention to the crucial work of Chicano artists while helping to educate the public on platonic love, and the ways in which values of strength, tenderness, cultural preservation, and spiritual growth are nurtured through friendship. Visitors to this exhibition will become inspired to connect to their and other communities, challenging traditional notions of love, and therefore planting seeds to build resistance to an increasingly hyper individualistic society.

Shoes are a delightful expression of style, taste, personality and investment. From the mid-1980s and beyond, “kicks” or sneakers have been elevated through sports and hip-hop culture. With the rise in popularity and recognition of particular brands, sportswear also socially elevates the shoe-wearer. In other words, no matter what else you are wearing, if you have the right kicks on, you have status. But this exhibition goes beyond celebrating sports shoes from the past half century, highlighting shoes representative of cultures around the world and across centuries.
