Designer Pete Fecteau constructed a huge Martin Luther King Jr. portrait called Dream Big using 4,242 officially licensed Rubiks Cubes. It measures 19″ x 8’6″ x 2.25″ (5.8m x 2.6m x 5.7cm ). It weighs roughly 1000 pounds (454kg). Each cube has been reversed solved or twisted so that one of the faces maps its nine stickers into the total image, 38,178 stickers total. The construction process took a little over 40 hours and the final installation to about five and a half hours with 6 volunteers helping. The cubes were rented through the You Can Do The Cube organization. The mosaic was on display during the 2010 ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan USA from September 22nd to October 10th. There were roughly 30,000 people who came to view the mosaic during that time. Dream Big placed in the top 50 out of 1,700+ entries.
