Flower Bomber Live Installation Experience
Jun 8 - Jun 9
Join us as artist Paul Villinski and the Museum's curatorial team undertake the monumental task of installing the site-specific installation "Flower Bomber," featuring a 750-pound interpretation of an iconic, 1940's B25 Mitchell airplane.
With a wingspan of 30 feet, the sculpture features a complex wooden structure with a skin of translucent fiberglass attached with 3,000 rivets. A special Teupen lift -- one of the few in the Commonwealth of Virginia -- will be used by the team to suspend the work from three points of the Museum's structural roofline beams.
Once suspended, "Flower Bomber" will deliver its payload of more than 3,000 aluminum flowers onto the atrium floor where they will accumulate into a large pile. Seven different flower species will be represented, each laser-cut and shaped by hand in Paul's New York studio. They are made from aluminum cans collected by Sure We Can, a non-profit recycling center, community space and sustainability hub in Brooklyn where canners -- people who collect cans and bottles from the streets to make a living -- come together with students and neighbors through recycling, composting, gardening and arts.
