Stiletto to Stigmata

"Pretty in Pink"

Those are high-heeled shoes positioned to form a mandala. Willie Cole's show with the groan-inducing title "Sole to Soul" at Alexander and Bonin gallery is more a curiosity exhibit. It features a lot o' soles, but I'm not so sure about the soul part. It's always interesting to look at a ton of one particular thing. The artist could have used spoons, and I think the effect would've been the same. A breezy walk-through that you forget soon afterwards.
