Artist seeking shoes for large scale sculpture. Above: CG mock up for untitled shoe pyre sculpture.

Residency Unlimited has selected Melissa A. Calderon to launch the new community based program Residency Unlimited at Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education.

Her project is focused on shoes.

Bronx-based, multimedia artist Melissa A. Calderon is seeking donations of old shoes to be included in a large scale sculpture.  

The artist is looking specifically for women's high heel or work/dress shoes - dressy flats are acceptable as well. She's looking for 500 pairs.

This work will be done in collaboration with the students at Casita Maria during the artist's residency. The work will then be on exhibit this fall at Hunter College's new Spanish Harlem gallery in its inaugural exhibition curated by Puerto Rican artist Antonio Martorell and Curator Susana Torruella Leval.
