Inflatable Sculpture

Artists: Carmen C. Rudd and Dolly Hopkins the clown

Date: June 23, 1979

Inflatable Sculpture was created by Carmen C. Rudd and Dolly Hopkins. The artists demonstated the 100 foot "snake-like sculpture" on Government Street. Dolly Hopkins, dressed as a clown, stood inside the bag and as it filled with air she walked through the sculpture until she finally broke out of it at the end.

The artists explained that the sculpture was created to "explore space in new media—plastic."
