This was the balloon sculpture we saw in one of the main halls. Not sure if the picture does it justice.
I believe this old skool style plane is paying homage to the Wright brothers’ important flight.
The detail that I hope is not missed is the little balloon man hanging onto the plane for dear life. Very cute.
I forgot to jot down the name of the balloon artists but it was pretty impressive. They were using metal frames to tie their balloons around.
Here is another shot of the two artists hard at work creating another smaller red plane and a multicolored sphere–not sure what the goal of that was.
