Dreams Become Destiny captures the soul of the stargazer, the visionary and the brave adventurer. It is both an invitation and a challenge; to dream, to question and to imagine. To fail and then persevere.
The juxtaposed images of a Nebraska field and a rocket soaring above honor our connection to the earth and entice the next generation of pioneers to explore the unknown, discover new worlds, push the boundaries of imagination….and then push further.
Is there a limit to what we can know and who we can be? The answer lies in the heart of the dreamer; for the greatest voyage of discovery begins in our dreams and rises to destiny on the unstoppable determination to reach beyond the stars.
Note: This sculpture was a special commission by the Nebraska By Heart committee to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of Clayton Anderson, Nebraska’s first astronaut.
