Ellie & Ellie’s Baby
Ellie Artist: Pascale Pryor & Linda De Los Santos
Ellie’s Baby Artist: Michelle Sin & Volunteers
Ellie was the prize winning float of the Oak Cliff Mardi Gras parade in 2017. Pascale Pryor and Linda de los Santos lead a group of friends in their annual pursuit of parade glory by fashioning Ellie. After winning first place, they donated Ellie to SPARK! so that she could live on and entertain. Ellie has since become the subject of a creative writing lesson plan for us.
Hatched in Summer 2019, a yet to be named baby is Ellie’s first offspring. This installation is the brainchild of Michelle Sin. Michelle offered the creation as a collaborative project for families and led them through design, paper mache and painting throughout the months of May and June 2019.
