What’s going on with Aspen and Snowmass fire trucks and emergency vehicles? They have been covered in colorful flowers. Portraits of Hope is here to spread the word in a giant way throughout our valley. In 1995, Ed & Bernie Massey founded Portraits of Hope. This is not the first time Ed Massey, a sculptor, painter, and installation artist, has displayed art to the entire world to see, he has been doing these kinds of things since his college days. With his brother’s help, Portraits of Hope organization has involved 90,000 youth and adults in high profile art projects that have transformed blimps, airplanes, buildings, New York City taxi fleet & tugboats, racecars, lifeguard towers in Los Angeles and now for the first time Aspen and Snowmass fire trucks and emergency vehicles. The flower design which is used for this and other Portrait of Hope projects is their symbol of joy, life, youth, beauty, renewal and the environment. A geometric design is also used in some projects symbolizing the “Shaping of the Future.”
