Mirrored Hot Air Balloon Traveling over Massachusetts This Summer
It could very well be the coolest looking thing in the sky over Massachusetts this summer.
WBUR reports that The Trustees of Reservations are launching a flying public art project this summer that you can see this July.
The conservation nonprofit says the mirrored hot air balloon was created by American artist Doug Aitken, who is known for his large-scale outdoor installations.
And this is certainly a large-scale installation.
The giant hot air balloon is designed to reflect the landscape around it. So it'll look like a trippy giant mirror marble in the sky. And it will be different every time you see it.
And you can see it for two weeks in July starting the 12th.
The project, called 'New Horizon', is scheduled to travel over eight Massachusetts locations, including he Long Point Wildlife Refuge and the FARM Institute on Martha’s Vineyard and the Holmes Reservation in Plymouth.
Pretty much all of the locations are properties of The Trustees of Reservations, with a Boston location to be added later.
The stops will all be accompanied by events called "happenings" with music, speakers and yes ticketed balloon rides.
And at night the balloon lights up turning into a glowing sculpture in the sky.
I for sure will be seeking this mirrored hot air balloon this summer. Will you?
