Ronald McDonald House Chicago Donor Wall: Magic Carpet

Well, you don’t know what
We can see
Why don’t you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free 

– Steppenwolf  – Magic Carpet Ride

Magic Carpet Ride is a song that almost gives permission to forget reality for a brief period of time to allow dreams to make their way into a person’s state of mind. It basically suggests that fantasy has the ability to free a person from their troubles, and unexpected things can happen when someone takes a “magic carpet ride” away the day-to-day troubles. The magic carpet ride is a free vacation, a mental break from everything that people are forced to face.

 80 unique doors will be showcased on two gallery walls in the main public area of the Ronald McDonald House being built in the heart of downtown Chicago near Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital. The doors are meant to symbolize the philosophy that ” The doors of Ronald McDonald House are always open for you.”  To learn more click on the following links:

Materials used: 

  • Carpet by Flor
  • Acrylic letters, frame and window
  • Aluminum rivets
  • Vintage Brass door knob

I had a handful of carpet scraps left over from a project that I could not resist using. Adding the whimsical “Care” in acrylic I think compliments the door nicely.
