5th ANNUAL “INSPIRED SOLES” ART SHOW AND AUCTION BENEFITS ARTLINK!
Exhibition features more than 70 stilettos transformed into art
INSPIRED SOLES – A WELL-HEELED EXPERIENCE
The annual “Inspired Soles” auction and art show is back, and this year, attendees have even more reason to be pumped (pun intended), since two new exciting components have been added to the show- online bidding and Inspired Soles wearables!
Inspired Soles showcases the creative minds of local artists who use a stiletto as their blank canvas to transform into one-of-a-kind works of art. More than 70 participating artists and designers have volunteered thousands of hours in this annual event that has become an organic showcase of local soul.
Inspired Soles wearables is the answer to every fashionista’s prayers. For all the women who have swooned over stilettos exhibited at past shows, now you have an opportunity to actually wear them! A selection of artists will create a limited number of wearable designs and work personally with the buyer on recreating the design on a stiletto of her choice and size.
All Inspired Soles stilettos will be sold to the highest bidders of the online auction which begins the week prior to the event, and closes at 9:30 p.m. on First Friday, April 1. As with past years, net proceeds benefit Artlink Phoenix, a nonprofit organization dedicated to linking artists, businesses and the public to better understand, appreciate and promote a thriving arts community in central Phoenix.
NEW DOWNTOWN GALLERY DEBUTS WITH “INSPIRED SOLES” ART SHOW AND AUCTION

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH A BLACK STILETTO AS A CANVAS?
That’s the question that the predominantly female crew behind the 6th Avenue Gallery posed to artists and designers to solicit participation in “Inspired Soles” Art Show and Auction. The response has been nothing short of sensational – but don’t take our word for it. Come see for yourself when the 6th Avenue Gallery debuts its exhibition on First Friday in April. Featuring dozens of high heel stilettos transformed into works of art, along with a provocative photo collection of women wearing their favorite power stilettos, this show is sure to validate what Marilyn Monroe and women everywhere have long known to be true, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.”

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT “INSPIRED SOLES”
“Inspired Soles” is the brainchild of BJC Public Relations (BJC) and Torres Marquez Communications (TMC), two power house public relations agencies that are celebrating their recent move into a newly renovated downtown Phoenix building owned by BJC. The agencies put their heads together and determined that a show featuring stilettos designed by Valley artists was an appropriate way for two mostly female PR firms to celebrate their new digs, and thriving multicultural marketing partnership.
