The American Dream is built around the form of a refugee tent, such as the ones used by families rendered homeless during the Tulsa Race Massacre. It will be placed in a wooded setting and covered with orange and yellow marigold flowers, which recall the fiery destruction of people’s homes. Yet even as they memorialize an act of violence, the marigolds suggest renewal and rebirth.
The American Dream by Sarah Ahmad is a series of six artworks installed at the Oxley Nature Center. Maps for the artwork will be posted onsite at the Oxley Nature Center. The walk to see each artwork is two miles round trip, approximately 45 minutes. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended, along with drinking water. Parking is available at the center.

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.
“In 2018, Oklahoma was ranked 47th nationally in overall educational funding. This project represents the hundreds of thousands of students left behind by a decade of legislative inaction. We hope to provide a reminder through the power of visual art for voters to stand up for the future of Oklahoma by committing to vote pro-education." -Sarah Agee
