OFF THE WALL: For Sigerson Morrison the writing isn’t solely on the wall — it’s all over their shoes and bags. On Tuesday evening [eds: March 2] The New York accessories firm will unveil its first art exhibition at the firm’s East 71st Street boutique, with an installation by Dan Funderburgh. The artist will be there to present his large-scale wall covering, limited edition prints and accessories at the opening. The boutique, which the company refers to affectionately as “The Laboratory” will now serve as a venue for small shows and exhibitions for working artists. The store also carries stationery, jewelry, books candles and other esoteric items along with their signature shoes and accessories. “Here, we are an independent voice in a heavily branded neighborhood,” said co-designer Miranda Morrison. “[It’s] a little bit of a find for the curious or intrepid shopper.”
