Remember to take your shoes off when you pass through security! That is what the TSA agents always remind you at the airport.  At the SFO Airport,  while you remove your shoes you can see on display artist Yayoi Kusama’s High Heels for Going to Heaven.  The larger than life pair of red and white polka dotted heels, a characteristic of Kusama’s style, sprout flowers with little mirrors in the center. Aren’t you glad you don’t have to wear these shoes through the airport?
