The Bluebird of Happiness


The Bluebird of Happiness was featured in Livingston, Montana’s 2016 4th of July Parade, submitted on behalf of myself, artists Julie Haas and Trenton Duerksen, and friends Walter, Ben and Julia. This piece was created in 24 hours. The materials include floral sheeting, hula hoops, my handmade inflatable wings, garlands, cardboard, hot glue, and a flatbed trailer. Although we did not win the competition, we succeeded at creating an exuberant feat of teamwork and spirit overnight.
