Fox, Fluevog & Friends: the story behind the shoes closes at the Museum of Vancouver this week (September 26, 2010).
Curated by Joan Seidl, Director of Exhibition and Collection MOV
We would like to acknowledge the incredible assistance of the display team at the Museum of Vancouver (Sandy Blair, Senior Display Technician; Chris Friesen, Display Technician) who constructed this exhibition (and the Art of Craft). They have been invaluable problem solvers and innovators and have patiently interpreted our sketchup models and my last minute lighting adjustments. Without their knowledge and skill these designs would not have been realised.
Sandy Blair has recently retired. We feel very, very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with him and as sad as we are that we will no longer have the chance to work with him on further exhibitions, we wish him a wonderful, well-deserved retirement.

DGTV interviewed John Fluevog in the Fox, Fluevog and Friends exhibit at MOV. Check out the video here for a look at bits of the exhibition and a peek at some of the shoes.

Wow! Fox, Fluevog and Friends opened last night to a crowd of 600 people. It really was wonderful to see visitors in the exhibit space for the first time.

The Fox, Fluevog & Friends opening party starts in a few hours. As a little preview of the show, here are two time lapses we shot of part of the install:
Installation of what I’m calling the Wall of ‘Vog – shot over two full shoe-hanging days. Thank you to Chris Friesen (MOV Display Technician) and Rachael Ashe (tireless volunteer) for working on this with me.

Art of Craft has closed, the objects have been packed up and re-crated. Kind of sad to see it go. But… Darren and I have moved on to designing Fox, Fluevog and Friends – The Story Behind the Shoes.
This latest exhibit opens at MOV on May 14th with the opening party on the evening of May 13th at 7pm.
Here are a few photos of the exhibit in progress after the jump:
Darren and I are working on a new exhibit design for MOV‘s upcoming Fox and Fluevog show. Here’s a photo from a recent exhibit planning meeting:
