WHAT IS THE DREAM ROCKET PROJECT? The Dream Rocket
Team is collecting nearly 8,000 artworks from participants
around the globe. The artwork will be assembled together to
create a massive cover in which will wrap a 37 story Saturn
V Moon Rocket at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville,
Alabama. We will also be displaying submitted artwork in dozens
of national venues prior to the wrapping of the Saturn V.
Additionally, we are posting images of submitted artwork &
their stories on our Website, Flickr, and Facebook.
The Dream Rocket project
uses the Saturn V Moon Rocket as a symbolism of universal
values of the human spirit. Optimism, hope, caring for our
natural resources, scientific exploration, and harnessing
technological advancements for a better quality of life while
safeguarding our communities, are all common desires across
national and international boundaries. Participants are able
to express and learn about these values through this creative
collaboration. With the completion of each artwork, participants
are asked to write an essay explaining their artwork, and
the dream theme in which they chose. You can be a part of
the Saturn V Rocket Quilt AND the Dream Rocket Express Tour!
How can I Participate & Have my Artwork Displayed?
The Dream Rocket project would like to challenge you to 'Dare
to Dream'. To dream about your future and the future of our
world through dream themes such as health, community, conservation,
science, technology, space, peace, and so on. We would like
you to use your selected Dream Theme to express, explore,
and create your vision on your section of the wrap. We hope
that you are able to express and learn through this creative
collaboration. With the completion of each artwork, you are
asked to write a brief essay explaining your artwork, and
the dream theme in which you chose.
