Dream Big was a year-long project in which Pete created a mosaic of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. using 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes.
For a short time it was the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube mosaic. He
created it with the help of YouCanDoTheRubiksCube, First Park
Congregational Church, The Student Advancement Foundation and Cooley Law
Pete Fecteau was born on April 9th, 1983 on Williams Air Force Base in
Arizona to Janice and Paul Fecteau. As an “Air Force Brat” Pete and his
family moved around the U.S. pretty frequently. His mother and her twin
sister Janet Banister are both talented artist and the artistic vein
showed early in Pete’s childhood. He had a traumatic childhood and used
art as a way to express his emotions and as a way to escape.
Pete now seeks to create metaphors based on his observations. He
finds gaps in thinking and fills them with visual ideas. “Dream Big”
combined the need for creative thinking in public schools with lessons
of history while using a bleeding edge medium, the Rubik’s Cube.
