White Cloud was a temporary installation designed for the exterior facade of the Cleveland Museum of Art's famed ceremonial entrance of their 1916 building. The installation was commissioned by the Cleveland Museum of Art in partnership with Cleveland Public Art and became the backdrop for the museum's annual Summer Solstice event which attracts around 5,000 people. Comprised of nearly 100 eight foot weather balloons, the installation stretched over 300 feet and floated 30 feet in the air. Dancing precariously above the ground and accompanied by light projections, White Cloud created a dreamlike tableau which temporarily transformed the neoclassical architecture of the museum's building. White Cloud was inspired by J.R. Cox's painting of the same name which displayed a voluptuous cloud hanging over a desolate landscape offering hope and a better future. Americans for the Arts selected and recognized White Cloud as being among the top 50 public art projects in the United States in 2010.
