America- By Doub and Carrie

Last night I attended the opening for the collaborative art project of Carrie and Doub!
Carrie happens to be our Assistant Art Director, and Doub, our Art Director, Assistant Design Director, and also my sister! :)
Together they created a gigantic eagle sculpture, made mostly of wood, cardboard, paper-mache. It is incredible!

The eagle will be on display here at the Philadelphia Navy Yard in building 543 for the next six weeks, and I encourage you to come check it out and write your thoughts on the wall beside it!
As you might imagine, it takes a lot of work to get a bird this big suspended in the air! Below is a little video clip showing the work behind getting the bird made, moved, and hung from the ceiling! Underneath that, more pictures!

After the eagle was finally lifted up where it needed to be, they were so glad they thought they’d give him a little kiss! :)

A little “thank you” from the artists, written on the wall!

If you are in the area at all over the next six weeks, come on down to the Philadelphia Navy Yard (at the south end of Broad Street) and check out this eagle! It’s so incredible!
