Inflatable Museum — Chile

by Peter Biľak

In a country that stretches over 4,300km (2,670mi.) from north to south, not everyone has a fine art museum within convenient travelling distance. Chilean artist Antonio Balcells Aguirre has devised a unique solution for visitors who cannot travel to museums: an inflatable museum that travels to visitors. With the help of government funding, Balcells Aguirre created a portable museum that can be set up in less than an hour. It carries a collection of national sculptural treasures to extremely remote locations of the country and is often used by schools.
