As part of a collaborative public art project, Girl Scout troops across the country, including Girl Scout Troop 1334 from Sheridan, Wyo., participated in the Dream Rocket Project launched by International Fiber Collaborative, Inc.
Each troop selected a theme to express on a section of the rocket’s wrapping. Girl Scout Troop 1334 created “Signs of Peace” to include in the nearly 8,000 pieces currently being collected by the Dream Rocket Team from participants around the globe.
The artwork will then be assembled together to create a massive cover that will wrap a Saturn V Moon Rocket at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama from May through June 2011.
According to the Dream Rocket project, the Saturn V Moon Rocket is a symbolism of universal values of the human spirit. Through this creative collaboration, participants were asked to write an essay explaining the artwork and the dream theme in which they chose. Girl Scout Troop 1334 selected the theme of peace. Each girl in the troop designed her own peace sign, and the designs were then sewn together to form a mini quilt.
