You know I love food.  You know I love art.  My third passion is shoes.  I cannot divulge the number of pairs I own out of sheer embarrassment, but trust me, it is a lot.  Shoe selection had a little something to do with why I abandoned my pursuit of becoming a chef.  If I had to wear clogs everyday, even adorable orange ones, I might just die of boredom.  You might need a shoebox for this next Call.  You can’t have mine…

Check out this great Call for Entries from Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) for Shoebox, an international small sculpture exhibition.  There’s a price break if you enter early, so don’t delay…
