Under Her Wing was the Universe creates a 2.5 acre native prairie landscape comprised of grasses, flowers, and trees. Within the habitat lies a large-scale sculptural pavilion that shelters visitors and invites them to escape into daydreams and possibility. During the day, viewers can experience the work as a sculpture large enough to envelope us whole. During the night, viewers will delight in a thousand stars overhead. The goal is to create a place on the edge of downtown Enid that awes and inspires and attracts: an outdoor sanctuary for hometown folks to find a newness within their community, as well as an entry-point destination for visitors to discover what makes Enid special. This is contemporary Oklahoma art which nudges us to look forward into the abyss of potential while also encouraging us to hold dear the place from where we come. The concept is driven by intergenerational relationships, encouraging recognition of those who have influenced our individual understanding of how we related to humanity and how we connect with the world around us.
Under Her Wing was the Universe was designed by Oklahoma artist, one-time exhibITion Featured Artist, and friend of amshot, romy owens. It was funded and made possible by sponsors.
