A Closer Look: Diamonds in the Sky

MFA student Karrie Hovey's "Diamonds in the Sky" is a corrugated tin wall of 1,262 magnetized porcelain stars, each one representing a Coalition casualty suffered in Iraq from March 2003 through this October. "The purpose of the project is to create a memorial for the soldiers. It is absolutely not intended as a protest of the individuals that are (fighting) and have fought for our country," Hovey says. When the project is unveiled on Veteran's Day at the San Francisco Civic Center, the stars are intended to be removed, taken to other public locations and tracked on Hovey's Web site.
