In partnership with the High Museum, Wish ATL is excited to announce that “The Rise of Sneaker Culture” exhibit is coming to Atlanta! The exhibition explores the evolution of the sneaker from its origins in the mid-nineteenth century to its role in the present day as an urban status symbol and marker of masculine identity. There will be 155 different sneakers on display from the archives of adidas, Nike, and Converse, to design houses such as Prada and Louboutin. Come by the store and snap a pic standing on our Sneaker Exhibit mat and share on social media with the hashtag #SneakerHigh2016 for a chance to be included in an interactive slide show. Don’t miss the exhibit when it lands in Atlanta on June 11th, 2016.

This past week, we had the opportunity to host Jeff Staple for an evening at the High Museum of Art as well as an exclusive “1-2-1 w/ jeffstaple” interview with B.o.B. Bridging the gap between streetwear culture and the world of fine art, over 150 attendees got the chance to experience an inspiring talk from Jeff in which he spoke on his own personal journey and the concept of impossible. A select few were able to take part in a unique portfolio review session functioning as a quasi-workshop where Jeff counseled budding entreprenuers on the ins and outs of the industry after in depth analysis of their portfolios.
The following day, Jeff Staple held his popular “1-2-1 w/ jeffstaple” interview series with Atlanta’s own B.o.B here at Wish. The two talked about B.o.B’s rise in the industry as well as his next steps in front of a small live audience. Take a look at more images from the past week below, and be on the lookout for footage as well.
