Angels of Freedom is a social installation that invites visitors to photograph themselves as angels with brightly lit wings and halos. The project contains a deep underlying message discouraging discrimination through interaction. Five giant wings with white halos encourage people to turn into angels in a few simple steps through the power of photography and social media.
Angels of Freedom is a featured installation at WAVE: Light + Water + Sound, an exhibition of cutting-edge works of contemporary public art presented from May 31–June 3, 2018. The free four-night festival features interactive artworks, temporary installations and performances in and around the Blue River Plaza in downtown Breckenridge, transforming the river, bridges and waterfront area into outdoor canvases, stages and exhibition spaces.
Funding for WAVE is generously provided by the Town of Breckenridge and the National Endowment for the Arts, with media support from Mountain Living.
