Donald W. Reynolds Grand Hall
The fourteen-foot diameter mylar balloon hanging in the Donald W. Reynolds Grand Hall is a model for a future artwork by contemporary artist Trevor Paglen. In partnership with the Nevada Museum of Art and in collaboration with aerospace engineers, Paglen proposes to launch a similar balloon into orbit as a purely artistic gesture.
Exclusive sponsorship for this installation, and lead sponsorship for the Museum’s STEAM education programs, is provided by Switch.
