The Art of the Shine


Curtis Phillips by John G. Zimmerman

Our collection of photographs taken by Life magazine photographer John G. Zimmerman from the 1953 shoeshine contest in Wilson, NC are going to be on display at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham.  This exhibit is titled The Art of the Shine and will be in the Crowe Lobby Gallery starting just after the New Year until March 15, 2015.  We have partnered with the Flanders Gallery in Raleigh and they are creating the exhibit which will also include Curtis Phillip’s shoeshine chair.

I am looking forward to visiting the exhibit!
