ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A new exhibit is on its way to Albany's Museum of Art.

Each sneaker design was unique and had a story and personality.

The Art Museum's Executive Director Paula Williams said the exhibit meshed well with the main gallery Hip-Hop theme.

"This has been so exciting. We've already gotten such wonderful feedback," said Art Executive Director Paula Williams."

The art and sole of a sneaker head transformed mere footwear into works of art.

"The design that goes into it. The way that transform something that is just merely a functional item into a piece of art that people can collect," said Dunno Skateboards Co-Owner Chris Miller."

The exhibit goes on display tomorrow through September 25.
