This project was inspired by Colette Miller’s Global Angel Wing Project

Colette first painted wings in Los Angeles, the city of angels. The first pair was simple street art but the response was natural, immediate and spontaneous - from people of all sorts and backgrounds. They stopped to admire, insert themselves between the wings, and sometimes took photos.

Colette has painted wings globally, in Kenya, Australia, England, Japan, France, Cuba, Juarez Mexico, Dubai, Taiwan, and more, and many in the USA. Though some are commissioned, and others gifted, the wings themselves are free to the world. Never owned by anyone, not even Colette, though they are of her provenance and work.
