Title: Starry Night in Huffman Field

Teacher: Mrs. Wetzel

Theme: Imagination

Did you enjoy this project? This project was a lot of fun and we are excited about being involved in a permanent installation.

About: On a Starry night in Huffman Field flying cows soar above as the Wright Brothers beg them to leave the field for them. Dayton, Ohio was where all the original work was done. We wanted to show in a high contrast of colors, how spectacular the brothers must have felt knowing they were embarking on this wonderful journey.
