Lightweight Dinosaur – Balloon Sculpture by Airigami

The lobby of the Virginia Museum of Natural History sports a rather adorable meat-eating dinosaur. Said dinosaur is a balloon replica of an Acrocanthosaurus. It’s a study in contrast to the actual skeleton of the dinosaur standing right next to it. The sculpture was put together by Airigami, a New York based art studio specializing in gigantic balloon sculptures. The core team was headed by Larry Moss and composed of Marsh Gallagher, TJ Michael, Phil Cosmos and Dee Cosmos. It took the artists of Airigami four days to complete the 20-foot structure. They also had the help of the museum staff and a gaggle of delighted elementary students. The sculpture will stay in the museum lobby for as long as it lasts.
