In Memory of Adam Shelby White
September 26, 1974 – September 11, 2001
Title: “At the Summit”
Dream Theme: Celebrating Life
The essence of Adam was as a ball of light. He was willing, in a loving way, to take risks, never at anyone's detriment, but just for fun and adventure. "Life is an adventure!"(like climbing the mountain), was kind of a signature slogan of his.
This art work depicts the New York City skyline Before, During, and After September 11th, 2001.
I painted the NYC skylines and then made transfers from scanning the paintings. The photos of Adam were of a life celebrated by doing what he loved. The photo of NYC with the "angel cloud" was sent to Melissa after 911 by someone who had heard her story. She now writes a column for the Birmingham news called, Good News Melissa.
Losing her son in the September 11th attacks created a desire in her to share positive things people are doing with their lives and in the community.
Thank you, Melissa for sharing your son's story and photos!
This work would not have been accomplished without your part in it.
..Celebrating This Life- Thank you, Adam

Materials and Techniques Used:
Recycled fabric, markers, Craft bonding material
What is your group’s artwork about?
The girls decided to do a community based theme. They chose the earth to be the center focus of the project. The earth is made up of puzzle pieces that hold each girls name to represent her part in helping make a difference in some part of the "community". Each girl that surrounds the earth holds an individual idea or suggestion of how they or anyone can make a difference in themselves, their community, or the world as a whole. The girls holding hands surrounding the earth represents Girl Scout teamwork.

Title: "Words of the Aftermath”
Theme: Created as part of our 911 themed show
What is your artwork about?
In the center is a free-hand machine embroidered iconic picture of the ruins of the twin towers. Glow-in-the-dark thread was used so in darkness the image appears almost ghostly. Words are all around the image (drifting like the reams of paper floating down after the bombing). The words include feelings, vocabulary, and ideas expressed in the aftermath of 9-11. Many of the words were taken from the letter I wrote to myself one week after the tragedy. Some words are bold and others are faint in an effort to entice the viewer to look closely at the piece? Around the border of the quilt are the names of some of the victims: male and female, common and unusual, representing those who died in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania, and across nationalities. It is quilted in a plain grid pattern designed to evoke strength.
It is simple, somber, and I hope powerful. It was a great honor to make this panel and I'm glad The Dream Rocket Project offered such a wonderful opportunity.
It is a pleasure to continue to see all of the new panels and watch as the panels travel around the country bringing the messages of the participants and the project to many people. And, as always, communicating with you is a joy.
Thanks for all you have done and continue to do.

Dream Theme-9/11 Memorial
What is your artwork about? "Like the day JFK was shot September 11, 2001 will live in my memory forever. I was not affected personally by the tragedy but it has still effected me as it has the country. It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years since it happened. Seeing the photos of the lights they turned on to memorialize the spot where the towers were I felt I would like to use that shot as the basis for my panel."
Techniques & Materials Used: 100% cotton background, Angelina Fibers, Printable cotton fabric, Misty Fuse, Wonder Under fusible.
Did you enjoy this project? It was interesting to do this for this somber memorial.
What other projects could the IFC do? Don't know. Maybe cover the Statue of Liberty or the Eiffel Tower??
