Get Ready to Soar with Meow Wolf’s “Skyworm” Hot Air Balloon
As part of our Media pass for the 51st Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, we were able to get a sneak peek at the Meow Wolf Skyworm hot air balloon.
Meow Wolf never fails to provide an out-of-this-world experience with their art installations that are designed to transport you to a different realm.
And now, they’re taking that experience a step further by introducing “Skyworm,” their artist-designed hot air balloon.
This balloon will take its inaugural flight at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta.
It is one of the most magnificent ballooning events globally and is set to capture the eyes of thousands of attendees.
Skyworm is a product of imagination, creativity, and collaboration.
Meow Wolf’s internal team came up with the balloon’s concept and design.
It was brought to life by the artist Jeff Hantman and creative director, Chadney Everett.
The design of the hot air balloon is a masterful illusion that challenges perspective and is quintessential to the Meow Wolf experience.
The creators of “Skyworm” were thrilled to work on this project together.
Jeff Hantman, the artist behind the creation, stated that the opportunity to collaborate with other artists who share his level of passion for creativity was an incredible privilege.
The teamwork that went into the creation of “Skyworm” helped ensure that this artist-designed hot air balloon was unique and unlike anything ever seen before.
Although it has a playful, fun theme, it still maintains the standards of art that Meow Wolf is known for.
Meow Wolf's "Skyworm" balloon is 90,000 cubic feet in volume, 80 feet tall, and 54 feet wide at its equator. Its design has been in the works for over five years.
The balloon has hundreds of panels on it. Every single panel was printed and then sewn together. It's powered by two burners.
Rainbow Ryders Hot Air Balloon Ride Co., a local hot air balloon company, collaborated on the production of “Skyworm.”
This collaboration ensured that the design, engineering, and inflation process of this artistic marvel were executed correctly.
The result is a vibrant hot air balloon that is a true testament to the creativity and imagination of everyone involved.
There's never been a better time to catch a glimpse of the Skyworm than during the annular solar eclipse on Saturday, October 14th.
This year’s Balloon Fiesta will feature seventy-five balloons, including the Skyworm, that will glow during the eclipse.
Attendees will be treated to an experience that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.
The "Skyworm" will undoubtedly add to the beauty of the eclipse.
Meow Wolf’s “Skyworm” hot air balloon is undoubtedly an exceptional work of art.
From the design to the inflation process, it was a joint effort that brought about an entirely unique and mythical creation.
The balloon is a visual representation of the artistic masterpieces that Meow Wolf is known for.
Basically, it's only right that it made its debut at the grandest ballooning event on Earth.
Attendees at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta are in for a fantastic treat.
We can’t wait to see what other imaginative and out-of-this-world creations Meow Wolf has in store for us in the future.
