YOU ARE HERE
AFTA Productions, in cooperation with the City of Glendale Arts & Culture Commission and the Community Services & Parks Department presents a series of installation of the YOU ARE HERE temporary public art series.
Colette Miller's "Glendale Wings" are the artist's first ever version of 'mobile wings' constructed out of reclaimed materials. Glendale Wings was previewed at the Central Library Groundbreaking Celebration, July 16, 2015, and fully unfurled on August 29, at Cruise Night.
The stand incorporated part of a reclaimed basketball hoop stand enabling it to accommodate a variety of levels of height, enabling folks of all ages and capabilities to adorn themselves with wings. The actual feathers of the wings were constructed from reclaimed tire shrapnel, painted and sealed.
Colette Miller’s Interactive Street Art Angel Wings Project started in 2012 in Los Angeles and has since expanded with wings displayed throughout the U.S., Africa and Australia. Thousands of people have taken pictures and posted via Facebook, twitter and instagram #wings worldwide. Her vision and concept for the wings is that we, here on earth can be the Angels, or “good”.
Colette Miller is a Los Angeles based artist combining her platform of fine art, film studies and global experiences to foster her artistic vision. In addition to her interactive Angel Wing street art project she is directing a documentary in Kenya, Africa. She was recently featured in a Ted Talks X.
