NFTS Angel Wing Project
The NFTS Angel Wing Project is a traveling public art piece constructed out of wood and vibrant paints. To be displayed across Iowa, each custom wing *feather* will be personalized with an angel name in honor of a NFTS family.
The Angel Wing Project**
Brought to life through loss.
What began as a vision by Angel Ambassadors and proud angel mothers Lindsay Crowley Felty and Amy Pope dreamt of a “larger than life” set of wings, that would not only celebrate angels but also unite together families who have experienced loss. Through the craftmanship of loss dads Chas Pope and Stan Coleman, the No Foot Too Small Angel Wing Project began.
After their design + construction, our next goal was in finding the right artist to breathe light, color, love and life into this very special project. At age 15, Rebeckah Regennitter seemed an unlikely choice as a full-time high school student and budding painter. What developed was the perfect match, as she embodied the mission of No Foot Too Small through her attention to detail, love of color, and sensitivity to honor every angel highlighted on the wings.
Beckah spent over 200 hours during the summer of 2020, from June until their unveiling at the Des Moines Wave of Light event on October 15th, 2020. Each feather is hand-painted, blended and layered, with both wings being exact mirrored copies of each other. Extraordinary, their vibrant colors and delicate strokes stand out in any space. We never could have imagined the tremendous impact + strength that these wings have created. They are simply breathtaking.
It is our honor to include angel names for families that have experienced pregnancy and infant loss in a way that is meaningful. If you are interested in hosting the Angel Wing Project in your location, or in sponsoring the third set of wings soon to be in production, please reach out to Robin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**Any re-creation or copyright of this project in any way is strictly prohibited.
There is power in saying and writing your child's name - to show that they existed, they mattered, and they are loved. Families can choose to honor their angel by reserving a wing piece to have their child's name personally crafted onto.
After completion, the Angel Wing Project will be on display at many of our NFTS events, as well as hosted at some indoor and outdoor locations as secured. This provides an opportunity for families that are new to their own loss, to know that they too belong to the NFTS family.
BUILD BIRTHING + BEREAVEMENT SUITES.
Donations raised from the purchase of a custom feather will help support the mission of No Foot Too Small.
