The Curious Case of the Missing Left Shoes

June 26, 2021 to October 10, 2021

Two dozen shoes in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes have appeared on the Studio stage at the Paine. Curiously, they’re all right shoes. Why are they there? And, where are the matching left shoes? Come and search for the missing shoes throughout the mansion and gardens. Along the way, you’ll learn the story behind the shoes and help to solve a mystery!

The shoe hunt is offered as a fun activity in combination with the Paine’s summer exhibition Walk This Way. People of all ages are invited to search for the shoes. The activity is available during open hours, and it is free with paid admission to the Paine (free for Members).
