A Conversation with Andy Yoder

March 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a conversation with artist Andy Yoder about his exhibition “Andy Yoder: Overbaord.” Reserve your spot by registering for this event.


About the Exhibition:

Overboard features nearly 250 sculptures by artist Andy Yoder riffing off Nike Air Jordan 5s. One of the most iconic and recognizable athletic shoes in contemporary culture, this specific model catapulted into popularity in 1990. That same year, more than 80,000 pairs of Nike brand shoes and work boots fell into the Pacific Ocean during a storm en route to the U.S. from South Korea, prompting Dr. Curtis Ebbesmeyer’s groundbreaking study of maritime currents. Using unique serial numbers on each sneaker, he and his researchers gathered data from beachcombers worldwide who found the shoes washed ashore.
