Larry Moss and Kelly Cheatle are building a 50-foot sculpture, rising to the fifth floor balcony of the historic Sibley Building atrium on East Main Street.

Dubbed Airigami Balloon Adventure: Journey on the Genesee, it officially opens Friday.

Made from more than 40,000 compostable balloons, the $125,000 installation will include a hot air balloon overlooking a cascading waterfall, a flock of Canadian flying geese, turtles, deer, fish, trees, rocks, insects, and grass made from thousands of balloon dogs.

The work took six months to design and plan, and 67 crew members from around the U.S. and as far as the Netherlands built it in 3,000 man-hours.
