The Spread Your Wings Project

Uniting Families and Communities in Hope, Love and Courage through Art and Art Therapy.

The Spread Your Wings Project was conceived by husband and wife artist team, Elizabeth and Bobby Jacobs, as a creative, uplifting response to the numerous challenges and tragedies we face today.

Elizabeth Bryan-Jacobs and Bobby Jacobs

Art and art creation are forms of expression that honor, uplift, unite and communicate important messages – they also add beauty to the world and have profound therapeutic benefits. As artists, we believe that part of our purpose is to give back through our art, inspiring you to join us in a creative journey that also creates change.

WINGS ACROSS AMERICA:
A JOURNEY OF LOVE AND COURAGE

On October 1, 2017, 58 lives were tragically lost in the biggest mass shooting at our country has ever seen at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, once again casting our nation into mourning. They were mothers, fathers, teachers, husbands, nurses and friends, daughters, sons, nieces and nephews – people with families, just like us.

On October 2, 2017, landscapers Jay Pleggenkuhle and Daniel Perez went to work on what would become the Las Vegas Community Healing Garden. The city donated land, and one thousand plus volunteers showed up to do everything from shoveling dirt, planting 58 trees and painting rocks with names of lives lost and Angel Wings. The garden was formally dedicated later that week, and has since become a place of memorial, respite, remembrance and love for the entire nation to experience.

THE SPREAD YOUR WINGS PROJECT ALSO RESPONDED

Sculptor Bobby Jacobs conceived a 6’ tall pair of bluestone Angel Wings to flank the Remembrance Wall in the Healing Garden, carved with the initials of the 58 people who tragically lost their lives.

Bobby’s wings were selected by the city of Las Vegas from among countless other artists wishing to create art for the Healing Garden.

The Spread Your Wings Project launched “Wings Across America,” documenting the journey of the wings from inception to installation in Las Vegas. The wings, named “Love and Courage,” were dedicated with the newly designed Remembrance Wall in a moving ceremony led by Mayor Carolyn Goodman, on 10/1/18.

SEE THE JOURNEY OF THE WINGS

Bobby’s Angel Wings and the LV Community Healing Garden are ultimate symbols of Hope, Love, and Courage: The Hope for something better that unites communities during tragedy, the Love it takes to be there for each other, and the Courage we need to keep moving forward, regardless of circumstance.

Watch the video about angels that inspired over 15 million views – and, inspired us to create The Spread Your Wings Project.
