Art students in Miss Majeski’s class created a community-boosting interactive art project based on the street art of Colette Miller. Students saw Miller’s episode of TED Talks where she discussed her inspiration for her now-famous wings, which have taken on a life of their own on social media. Miller explained how she was tired of seeing commercial images everywhere, but nothing positive that inspired her or made her feel good about herself or society. One day she and a friend wheat-pasted the first painted paper wings on a fence in the art district of Los Angeles. She watched in amazement as they took off in popularity with the public as people from all walks of life made her art their own, posting photos they took with the wings on Instagram. Soon Colette was asked to paint her wings in cities all over the world, sharing her positive message of peace and freedom with people from Chicago to Kenya to Perth, Australia. Erie Art students each painted feathers to add to our own wings project. Of course they took some pictures as well!
