Paper Plane Dreams

Shelby Kregel's avatar Shelby Kregel

The vision for this piece is to depict the wonder and whimsy of the stars. We live in a fascinating universe and looking at the stars just gives us a glimpse of hope and beauty in the world. This piece is meant to capture the wonder of kids dreams when they look into the stars. Reminding adults and kids alike to dream big, to look up and see all the possibilities there are in the universe. We will have a large paper (3D) airplane directly in front of the canvases to represent peoples dreams. Then have an interaction with people to fold and write down their own dream on a paper airplane and lay it in front of our giant canvases. This piece will be done with acrylic paint, india ink, and salt on canvas, concave to capture a planetarium feel. The canvases are large painted and depicted galaxies. In front of the paintings will be a physical large paper airplane placed to look like it is flying into the canvas. People will have the opportunity to write their dreams on paper airplanes.
