Bring in the Crowds with Custom Museum Inflatables

Custom museum inflatables are a great way to attract crowds of all ages.  They can be used as art in your newest exhibit, to dress up your museum, and more!  To see some examples of our custom museum inflatables, check out our past work of bringing art inflatables to life

Custom Museum Inflatables as Exhibits

Custom inflatables are the perfect art medium for bringing your art sculpture or art exhibit to life.  Our team can bring virtually any vision to life in the form of a custom inflatable, no matter the complexity!  This brings a whole other level of creativity to your art. 

Another great benefit of using inflatables as your art medium to bring your art to life is that inflatables are easy to transport!  They pack up into surprisingly small packages and, when compared to other art mediums, they are lighter making them cheaper and easier to take on the road to wherever your art show takes you!  Plus, since Inflatable Design Group uses the highest-quality materials available, you won’t have to worry about your inflatable being damaged during transit.

Air as Art

Another creative way you can use custom museum inflatables as your art exhibit is by playing around with air during inflation and deflation as part of your art show.

Lewis deSoto’s Inflatable Paranirvana (Self-Portrait) Sculpture

For example,  the artist Lewis DeSoto created a custom inflatable sculpture titled Paranirvana (Self-Portrait) and utilized art to add to the piece’s symbolism.  The custom museum inflatable was 26 feet long and, according to deSoto, symbolized “being released from the cycle of death and rebirth”.  This was done with the inflatable sculpture’s blower during timed inflations and deflations.  You can read more about deSoto’s piece and how he utilized air to add another level to his art sculpture in the article “Art That Breathes: Lewis’ deSoto’s Paranirvana (self-portrait)” by Anya Montiel.

Dress Up Your Museum

Another great use of custom museum inflatables is to use them to dress up the inside or outside of your museum!  Whether it is for a specific holiday or to attract people to your newest art exhibit, custom inflatables are a great way to make your museum stand out and attract attention to your museum!

The creativity that comes with custom museum inflatables is endless!  Inflatable Design Group’s team can bring virtually any vision to life in the form of a custom inflatable and your museum can then use the inflatables in different ways to attract people to your museum! 

Bring Kid’s Stories to Life with Custom Museum Inflatables

Another great way to use custom museum inflatables and dress up your museum is by working with Inflatable Design Group to create custom inflatables that bring kid’s stories to life. Just like with the above example of the witch’s shoes from The Wizard of Oz, our team has worked with various museums around the country to bring to life some of the kid’s favorite childhood stories such as If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, The Pigeon book series by Mo Willems, and more!
