Through October 31 at the Esplanade Museum [Alberta, Canada], this exhibit
features shoes that illustrate the rise and fall of the high heel in Western

Vivier, Salvatore Ferragamo and Jean-Louis Francois. Visitors can learn how

centuries. Click here for details.

CALDER JEWELRY
Through November 2 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art [Philadelphia, PA],
this exhibit focuses on the jewelry of artist Alexander Calder
[1898 1976], which functions as sculpture on a small scale while retaining
the linear yet three-dimensional aspect of the monumental mobiles for which
he is known. Click here for details.

Some of this material was gathered from the Costume Society of America e-Newsletter.
