Model planes used in this
series were made from recycled materials found in historic photographs and vintage
encyclopedia sets. This unique collection about aviation speaks of time,
history, nostalgia, courage, sacrifice and conflict, and serves as a reminder
of the nation’s first and second World Wars.
“It seems most fitting to
have this series on display at PDX, as Portland’s international gateway to the
globe,” said Greta Blalock, Port of Portland’s PDX arts and entertainment
coordinator. “It combines historic art with various mediums, materials,
photography and digitization.”
