The Sunday New York Times profiled Amanda Yoakum, an artist who uses plain white Nike sneakers as her canvas. The shoes are beautiful and the article definitely a good read, but I couldn’t help but get the nagging feeling that I’d read something like this before…

Last year, students in the Mural Arts, Big Picture Art Education program completed:Art & Sole: Walk a Mile in My Shoes… a project in which young artists used plain white Nike sneakers as their canvas.

*Note to the Times and anyone else interested, take a minute to check out our students’ work:
