The artist has long designed shoes, making a name for himself in the process.

A popular art museum in Bucks County will be showing the work of an artist whose work in the shoe industry has garnered him fame. Aniya Faulcon wrote about the artist’s exhibit for WIFT.

The work of Stuart Weitzman, an American shoe designer and the founder of the high-end international shoe brand that bares his name, will soon have a display of his work for all to see at the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown.

The exhibit will be open to the public starting today and go until the middle of January, according to Laura Turner Igo, the chief curator of the Michener Art Museum.

“We make choices when we choose the shoes that we want to wear and those choices tell us about who we are individually, culturally, and also, as the exhibition argues, tells us about history too,” Igo said.

Weitzman’s handiwork was sent to the Doylestown art museum from The New York Historical Society.
