Andy Yoder, our friend and former associate, continues to dazzle and amaze with his exhibit ‘Overboard’. See it's most iteration at Tyson's Corner Center featuring featuring 230 hand-crafted Nike Air Jordan 5 sneakers.
The exhibition is inspired by “The Great Shoe Spill of 1990.” In May 1990 five shipping containers holding 80,000 Nike sneakers went overboard in the North Pacific. The shoes eventually washed ashore littering the US northwest coastline. To bring attention to today’s culture of consumerism Andy crafted Nike Air Jordan 5 sneakers from reclaimed materials taken from recycling bins.
This exhibit is sponsored by Tysons Corner Management, along with support from ArtsFairfax and the Julie Collins Smith Museum. They pulled out all of the stops for this great presentation, which will remain on view through mid-January. If you’ve missed the previous showings, this a great chance to see this incredible work!
